Severe anemia of unknown origin. Don’t forget renal tuberculosis

Carmen Caldararu, Grigore Dogaru, Raluca Petri, Mădălina Chifu


Abstract:

Tuberculosis is a specific multi-systemic infection that can lead manifestation in any organ system. We report a case with severe long- standing anemia with no tuberculosis exposure and no suggestive symptoms for this disease. The only diagnostic characteristic element was a recurrent urinary tract infection despite repeatedly antimicrobial therapy. As the incidence of tuberculosis is still high worldwilde, when we investigate anemia we should consider tuberculosis because because TB - associated anemia is usually resolved with anti-TB treatment.

Keywords: microcytic anemia,renal tuberculosis,urinary tract infection
