Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a group of potentially life-threatening conditions seen particularly in diabetics, leading to high morbidity and mortality.
The aims of this study were to assess the common bacterial microorganisms causing UTI and their antimicrobial resistance patterns in Bandar Abbas (Southern Iran) during a four-year period.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the proportion of ultrasound abnormalities of the urinary system between two groups of children: affected with urinary tract infection (UTI) and unaffected (control).
AIMS: Type 2 diabetes is a reported risk factor for more frequent and severe urinary tract infections (UTI).
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common infectious diseases.
There have been a number of case reports of antibiotic-associated psychosis in the literature that have not been systematically reviewed.
Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) is the most prevalent bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the world, with more than 100 million cases reported annually.
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections in humans; however, there is no accurate and fast quantitative test to detect UTI.
OBJECTIVE: To improve the sample collection methods and bacteriologic localization patterns in male genital tract infection, and to investigate the influence of specimen collection and pathogen isolation on the diagnosis and treatment of prostatitis.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) affects about 2 % of boys and 8 % of girls during the first 6 years of life with Escherichia coli as the predominant pathogen.
OBJECTIVES: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the leading reasons for antibiotic prescriptions in emergency departments (EDs), with half of these antibiotics being inappropriately prescribed.
BACKGROUND: Urinary infections are a common type of pediatric disease, and their treatment and prognosis are closely correlated with infection location.
OBJECTIVES: To review cases of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacillus urinary tract infections (UTIs) treated with tigecycline and the literature related to this subject.
INTRODUCTION: Generalized joint hypermobility is deemed to be an underlying risk factor for many clinical conditions.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to provide resistance data for Escherichia coli isolates causing urinary tract infections in emergency department (ED) patients not requiring admission and explore if differences between this subpopulation and the hospital antibiogram exist.
OBJECTIVE: To study 24-h ambulatory blood pressure (BP) and development of hypertension over four decades in women with childhood urinary tract infection (UTI) associated with renal damage.
Fournier's gangrene is a rapidly progressing necrotizing fasciitis involving the perineal, perianal, or genital regions and constitutes a true surgical emergency with a potentially high mortality rate.
PURPOSE: Complications after prostate biopsy have increased and various causes have been reported.
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the safety and efficacy of antibiotic de-escalation in patients admitted with bacteremic urinary tract infection (UTI).
BACKGROUND: The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines on the workup for urinary tract infections (UTIs) in infants discourages the use of bagged urine specimens for urine culture.
