With the increase in endoscopic surgery, there is a growing concern about the effectiveness of sterilizing reusable equipment by immersion in 2% glutaraldehyde. Although reports of port site tuberculosis (post laparoscopy) are there in the literature, those of nephrostomy site post percutaneous nephrolithotripsy are not available. We describe the clinical features and treatment of six patients who presented with biopsy-proven skin tuberculosis at the nephrostomy-site for non-healing wound.
