[Renal tuberculosis and renal adenocarcinoma: a misleading association].Prog Urol. 2002 Feb; 12(1):89-91.PU
The association of renal cancer and renal tuberculosis is uncommon. While the incidental discovery of renal cell carcinoma in a tuberculous kidney is a classical finding, the discovery of tuberculous lesions after nephrectomy for cancer is exceptional. The authors describe the case of a patient operated for renal cancer in whom histological examination revealed associated renal tuberculosis.
