GUTB Role of Routine Nephrectomy for Non Functioning Kidneys
We in India still take facts presented from Western Literature as regards GUTB as gospel truth. Our experience as regards GUTB is definitely far more than what has been documented but our problem is improper documentation. We have seen many more aspects of GUTB of varied nature. AIIMS will have to be complimented as most of the studies pertaining to GUTB in India have come from this centre. Many others have presented their experiences at conferences but have not published them.
I am sure there are many seniors among Indian Urologists with vast experience. If some of them could pen down their personal experience, probably we can rewrite what ought to be learned concerning GUTB.
I am providing an article from AIIMS, Delhi which addresses the need for Routine Nephrectomy for Non Functioning TB Kidney. I am hopeful that many would post their views based on this study so that we can further our knowledge.
