Despite being one of the major health problem globally, tuberculosis still remains an important, but under diagnosed and ignored cause of kidney damage especially in resource poor settings. Timely diagnoses and treatment can cure this otherwise devastating resource draining ailment. We report a 10-year-old girl who had persistent pyuria and dysuria despite receiving multiple drugs empirically before antitubercular therapy was initiated.
