Genitourinary tuberculosis (TB) is a common form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. The kidneys are usually affected by hematogenous seeding at the time of primary pulmonary infection. Genitourinary TB has non-specific clinical presentations and variable radiographic appearances. We are reporting a case of genitourinary TB presenting as bilateral renal mass. The patient underwent computed tomography-guided kidney biopsy that showed a granulomatous lesion. Then, the patient was put on anti-tuberculous treatment with a good response. We feel that patients having multiple bilateral kidney lesions should undergo biopsy to determine the nature of the lesion before any surgical intervention.
