BACKGROUND: Fourniers gangrene caused by synergic aerobic and anaerobic organism is a life threatening disorder.
The aim of this population-based retrospective cohort study was to investigate the onset of urinary tract infection in newborns and the associated risks of childhood asthma.
Emerging evidence challenges the long-held paradigm that the healthy bladder is sterile.
AIM: Guidelines recommend collecting urine with suprapubic aspiration or urethral catheterisation in infants with a suspected urinary tract infection (UTI), but the invasiveness of these methods continues to drive research on new urine collection devices.
OmpT is one of the members of the outer membrane protein family that has been identified as a virulence factor in most of the uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC).
Of 23 unique Escherichia coli strains from 10 men with febrile urinary tract infections (UTIs) and their female sex partners, 6 strains (all UTI causing) were shared between partners.
BACKGROUND: Reasons for the successful global dissemination of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli sequence type 131 (ST131) are undefined, but may include enhanced transmissibility or ability to colonize the intestine compared with other strains.
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the most common underlying organisms, and associated urological anomalies in children presenting with urinary tract infection (UTI).
The capacity of subinhibitory levels of antibiotics to modulate bacterial virulence in vitro has recently been brought to light, raising concerns over the appropriateness of low-dose therapies, including antibiotic prophylaxis for recurrent urinary tract infection management.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - VUR treatment goals include prevention of febrile infections, prevention of renal injury, and minimizing morbidity of treatment and follow-up.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with cancer of the cervix uteri, penis, vulva, vagina, anus and oropharynx.
BACKGROUND: The prevalence of targeted and serendipitous treatment for, and associated recovery from, urinary tract infection (UTI) in pre-school children is unknown.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - An increasing trend of multi-drug resistance of E. coli from community-acquired urinary tract infections (CA-UTI) requires other treatment options.
INTRODUCTION: The incidence of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) in children with primary vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR) presenting symptomatically is well documented.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections in children. Lack of symptom specificity in younger patients, frequent association with malformations of the urinary tract, and the possibility of permanent renal damage require multiple complementary tests in daily practice.
PURPOSE: There are few guidelines and little data on imaging after urinary tract infections in older children.
BACKGROUND: The risk of deterioration of renal function in patients with urinary tract infection (UTI)-associated renal damage over several decades is incompletely known but of importance in regard to follow-up.
