Other findings include scarring and angulation at the uretropelvic junction known as "Kerr's kink." The ureter may appear either as a "pipe-stem" or a beaded corkscrew ureter; the latter was seen in this case.[sup.5,6] A CT scan may show calcifications, renal parenchymal masses, thick urinary tract walls and extraurinary TB manifestations.[sup.11] CT is the most sensitive in detecting and characterizing renal calcifications.[sup.12]
