Paper Abstract

In Siberia there is a hard epidemic situation on tuberculosis. Urogenital tuberculosis (42.4%) has the first place in the incidence rate among extrapulmonary forms. Complicated and widespread lesions are prevailing. One of the main reasons that is lack of pathognomonic symptoms. So different provocation tests are used. Our investigations have proved provoking influence of a low- intensity laser radiation on a tubercular inflammation. Local transcutaneous effect by an infrared laser radiation allows to provoke an exacerbation of a latent tubercular inflammation in kidneys and to discover it by means of the urinalyses also analysis of blood. In case of an expressed initial pathology of the urinalyses previously therapy ex juvantibus carried out by assignment of brief rates of unspecific preparations, optimum among which is ofromax. This method was used for 60 patients with various urological diseases and has allowed to increase the efficiency of diagnosis on 36%.
