Abstract

 Background: TUBERCULOSIS is a major health problem especially in developing countries. GENITOURINARY TRACT TUBERCULOSIS (GUTB) is one of the late complications of primary TUBERCULOSIS which usually manifests 22 years after primary infection. GUTB is the second most common extra pulmonary TUBERCULOSIS after lymph nodes in adults, but it is very rare in young children.Case Presentation: We present a 4 year-old girl with GUTB that her symptoms began at the age of three. She was admitted to hospital with dysuria and itching of anal area. She had a history of prolonged mostly nocturnal fevers, shivering generally during sleep and sometimes before urination since one year before admission. The tuberculin test was 33mm after 72 hours. PCR was performed on morning gastric juice and urine samples and Mycobacterium TUBERCULOSIS was identified in both. This case is one of the handful cases of GUTB in such a young age in literature.
