Yes, you can test urine for TB. sm
Subject: Yes, you can test urine for TB. sm

Active Tuberculosis
To diagnose TB of the respiratory tract, 3 to 5 sputum specimens are collected first thing in the morning on different days when they are most likely to contain the most mycobacteria. If extrapulmonary TB is suspected, samples are collected based upon where in the body the infection is likely to be. Multiple samples of gastric (stomach) washings/aspirates or urine may be collected and submitted to the laboratory. Sometimes cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), biopsied tissue, or other body fluids are also collected.
