The authors report about one rare case of renal tuberculosis in a pseudo-tumoral form, which had radiologic appearances compatible with a kidney cancer invading soft tissue. The fast spontaneous evolution towards fistulization allowed confirming the diagnosis of urinary tuberculosis. The outcome with treatment was favorable. The authors recommend that needle biopsy should be made in cases of doubtful kidney tumors to provide an exact diagnosis.
