Paper Abstract

In the West Siberia every tenth tuberculous patient has an extra pulmonary lesion. Urogenital tuberculosis cases are in the first place in occurrence among extra pulmonary forms. Complicated and widespread lesions of kidney are prevailing. The high concentration of anti-tuberculous drugs in the lesion locus is one of the most important component in the success treatment of tuberculosis, including nephrotyberculosis. We put the aim to increase the isoniazid concentration in tuberculous kidney by low-level laser therapy. It was proved that the laser therapy at the expense of improving of the blood microcirculation ensures to increase drug concentration in the lesion locus in 9 times.
