Bladder tuberculosis. Definition

Medical Definition: bladder tuberculosis

Tuberculous infection of the bladder, always secondary to renal tuberculosis. From the clinical point of view, produces ulcerative lesions, causing hematuria, urinary burning and frequency, resistant to conventional medical treatment. Ulcerated lesions, untreated, progress to healing. When lesions are multiple, the end result is the reduction in functional bladder capacity, which can be reduced to a low capacity reservoir (bladder trigonal). View genito-urinary tuberculosis.
