MEDEROS, Lilian M et al. Isolation frequency of the Mycobacterium genus in urine samples. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.591-592. ISSN 0716-1018.

Kidney infections caused by Mycobacterium genus are torpid and chronic evolution. In this study were analyzed 177 urine samples (included 110 from HIV patients) received between January 2006 and July 2014 in the National Reference Laboratory of Tuberculosis at Tropical Medicine Institute "Pedro Kourí" (IPK). The results were 17 isolates Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and 30 isolates of nontuberculous mycobacteria were detected. This study confirms the diagnostic importance of these infections especially in HIV/AIDS patients.

Keywords : Kidney infections; Mycobacterium; non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM).
