Fournier's gangrene is a rare, necrotizing fasciitis of the genitals and perineum caused by a mixture of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms.
Objective: The 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines address imaging after initial febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) in infants >2 months of age.
In the present study we demonstrated a novel protective role of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 flagellin 'b' in prevention of urinary tract infection (UTI).
PURPOSE: We evaluated whether stress levels in children and parents during radiological evaluation after febrile urinary tract infection are really lower using the top-down approach, where 99mtechnetium dimercaptosuccinic acid renal scintigraphy is used initially, than the bottom-up approach, where voiding cystourethrography is initially performed and repeated examinations are easier for all.
OBJECTIVE: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common problem in the elderly population.
BACKGROUND: Vulvovaginitis has a known association with urinary tract infections (UTIs) in girls.
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most frequent bacterial infection affecting women and account for about 15% of antibiotics prescribed in primary care.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the recent advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to adults presenting with febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) in the emergency department (ED).
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is common in infants and children, and Escherichia coli is the leading pathogen.
Fournier's gangrene is a rare but rapidly progressive necrotizing infection that results from the synergistic action of multiple aerobic and anaerobic organisms colonized on the skin and in the anogenital area.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infections due to Candida species are mostly encountered in hospital environment.
Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) is an emerging pathogen with a devastating impact on organ transplant recipients (OTRs).
BACKGROUND: Urinary Tract Infection is one of the commonest infections which affect humans.
OBJECTIVE: To investigate, in men presenting with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL), the prevalence of sperm autosome and sex chromosome aneuploidy.
Recurrent urinary tract infection involves mainly women and exhibits an ecological as well as economical risk.
OBJECTIVE: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common serious bacterial infection in infants.
MADRID, SPAIN (Press Release) - March 21, 2015 - A new study shows how changing working methods in surgery can significantly reduce bacterial resistance to antibiotics, while maintaining protection against infection and reducing costs by up to 60%. This work is being presented at the European Association of Urology conference in Madrid.
OBJECTIVE: To determine risks factors associated with severe sepsis or septic shock (SS) at admission in patients with community-onset bacteraemic urinary tract infection (CO-BUTI) including the impact of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria.
PURPOSE: Improved identification of children with vesicoureteral reflux at risk for recurrent febrile urinary tract infection may impact management decisions.
