Tuberculosis continues to be a major public health issue. The advent of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections led to a dramatic increase in extrapulmonary forms of tuberculosis, with a non-negligible number of cases with multifocal lesions. This study reports a disseminated tuberculosis case with pulmonary and renal localization in a severely immunocompromised HIV patient diagnosed by microscopic examination and the GeneXpert MTB/RIF on sputum and urine in the absence of a urine test, in particular, the urine lipoarabinomannan assay (TB-LAM).
Key words: Tuberculosis, disseminated, immunosuppression, HIV, Bangui.
