Involvement of the genitourinary organs is the most common site of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis. Genitourinary tuberculosis (GUTB) almost always starts from the kidney. A wide spectrum of complications can arise from the kidney being affected by GUTB. A rare complication of GUTB in the form of renogluteal fistula is described. Excision of the fistula with nephroureterectomy combined with anti-tubercular treatment has resulted in cure.
