Sonographic findings of renal tuberculosis
Ja In Han
ABSTRACT
Sonographic findings of 29 proven renal tuberculosis were analysed. The sonographic findings were multifocal minor calyectasis without dilatation of major calyx or pelvis(n=12), diffuse hydronephrosis(n=8), autonephrectomy(n=5), parenchymal destruction(n=4), focal calyectasis(n=2), papillary necrosis(n=1), and normal(n=3).Ancilliary findings were ureteral wall thickening(n=7), and thickening of the wall of the urinary bladder(n=3).Sonography is a useful technique for the diagnosis of renal tuberculosis and follow-up concerning hydronephrosis and parenchymal destruction.
