1/4. Urogenital infection by mycobacterium bovis relapsing after 50 years.

    A 64-year-old man was referred to chest clinic after presenting initially with painless haematuria. Bladder biopsies showed granulomatous inflammation and subsequent urine cultures grew mycobacterium bovis. He had been treated empirically for genito-urinary tuberculosis twice previously and on both occasions his haematuria ceased. Although the early hospital notes have been destroyed we believe this represents a very late and recurrent relapse of cystitis due to M. bovis.

2/4. Late recurrence of mycobacterium bovis genitourinary tuberculosis: case report and review of literature.

    A patient is described in whom mycobacterium bovis genitourinary tuberculosis occurred initially 25 years after childhood scrofula and then recurred 29 years later despite apparently successful therapy. A review of the literature indicated that this 29-year interval between successive bouts of clinical genitourinary tuberculosis is among the longest described. This case also is a reminder that, although rare, mycobacterium bovis infection and genitourinary tuberculosis still occur. To avoid nonrecognition of this disease and its potentially serious consequences, clinicians should remain vigilant for tuberculosis even in unusual clinical circumstances.

3/4. Concomitant ceco-appendicular and urinary tuberculosis. Description of two rare cases: physiopathological and diagnostic remarks.

    Two cases of specific tubercular processes in the ceco-appendicular zone and the urinary system in men aged 25 and 30 years are described. Both patients reported abdominal pain and persistent fever that did not respond to treatment. Surgery revealed ulcerated appendix, intraperitoneal serous exudate, ascitic liquid, peritoneal ulcerocaseous nodules, and fibrous adhesions. Histological sections revealed a tubercular puchet in the ceco-appendicular zone. Subsequent x-ray test in response to reports of frequent painful urination showed specific lesions in the papillae and renal ureteral ampullae, and urine cultures were positive for Koch's bacillus. Treatment with streptomycin, followed by isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, and morinamid for 2 years, was effective.

4/4. urinary tract infection caused by Mycobacterium terrae complex.

    We describe a case of recurrent urinary tract infection caused by Mycobacterium terrae complex in a patient with obstructive nephropathy. The mycobacterium was resistant to most antituberculosis drugs and despite its apparent clearance in the urine, the patient finally died of urinary sepsis caused by multiple bacterial pathogens.
