BACKGROUND: A patient's prior urine cultures are often considered when choosing empiric antibiotic therapy for a suspected urinary tract infection.
PURPOSE: The frequency of febrile urinary tract infection was determined after outpatient flexible cystoscopy in antibiotic naïve patients with bladder tumor.
BACKGROUND: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a devastating and potentially fatal disease requiring prompt and aggressive debridement.
Bacterial infections such as febrile urinary tract infection (fUTI) may run a complicated course that is difficult to foretell on clinical evaluation only.
The purpose of this report was to evaluate concordance with the most recent guidelines for the treatment of uncomplicated UTI based on antibiotic selection, dosage, frequency, and duration.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a major problem in nursing homes, and the mainstay of treatment is antibiotics.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) represent a serious medical problem with considerably high rate of morbidity.
Fournier's gangrene is the necrotizing fasciitis of perianal, genitourinary, and perineal regions.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection is the most common infectious complication following renal transplantation and its frequency is insufficiently studied in Portugal.
OBJECTIVE: To check whether subtle voiding dysfunction is related to recurrent urinary tract infection (rUTI).
BACKGROUND: Performing micturiting cystourethrography (MCUG) in young children with recurrent urinary tract infections is controversial with discrepancy among the major guidelines.
PURPOSE: PURPOSE:To evaluate the mortality and morbidity prediction capability of three different scoring systems: Fournier's gangrene severity index (FGSI), Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing Fasciitis (LRINEC) and neutrophile-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) with this retrospective cohort study.
Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is the leading cause of community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs), with over 100 million UTIs occurring annually throughout the world.
AIM: Previous studies suggest that 6-46% of children suffer from lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD).
The urine colour change is an important clinical sign associated with patological process not only in the urinary tract.
OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship between maternal UTI during pregnancy and neonatal UTI.
OBJECTIVE: Indwelling transurethral catheter is frequently used after gynecological surgeries in order to prevent urinary retention.
Fournier's gangrene is an acute, rapidly progressive, and potentially fatal, infective necrotizing fasciitis affecting the external genitalia, perineal or perianal regions.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections in childhood and causes acute and chronic morbidity and long-term hypertension and chronic kidney disease.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infectious diseases in children.
