Abstract

We report a case of miliary tuberculosis (MTB) occurring after extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy in a 51-year-old man. The MTB was complicated by pancytopenia and CD4+ T-lymphocytopenia, which was responsible for Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. Hematological parameters returned to normal in response to antituberculous treatment.
