Urolithiasis leading to renal failure is a very common occurrence. But if the patient is co-infected with genitourinary tuberculosis, then it becomes all the more unusual and challenging, especially if the patient is immunocompetent. This patient, who presented to us with bilateral urolithiasis and features of renal failure, underwent left nephrectomy after thorough investigations. The biopsy revealed features of renal tuberculosis. The patient was put on anti-tubercular therapy (ATT) and later, he underwent right ureteroscopic lithotripsy. He completed his course of ATT and is on regular follow-up. His serum creatinine also stabilised with regular hemodialysis. The main aim of this case report is to bring to light this unusual and interesting presentation of bilateral urolithiasis with genito-urinary TB presenting as renal failure, which was successfully managed.
