Here are some ...: Treating a patient with anti-Tb drugs for possible TB in kidneys or other past of urinary tract is usually based on radiographic finding of kidneys + positive TB skin test especially of recent conversion +/- positive culture for TB bacilli +/- chest X-ray change + high-clinical suspicion, etc. So, go to ask the prescribing Doc if any question arises.
