Bacillus Calmette-Guerin was administered through the ileal conduit of a 63-year-old man with upper tract recurrence of transitional cell carcinoma. Subsequent computed tomography showed bilateral renal masses, which were granulomatous at pathologic examination. The bacilli likely reached the kidneys via proven ileoureteral reflux. Patients with reflux may benefit from antituberculous prophylaxis.
