OBJECTIVE: The postnatal management of mild antenatal hydronephrosis (ANH) remains controversial.
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most prevalent admission diagnoses in hospital-based clinical practice.
AIM: To evaluate the predictive value of various clinical and laboratory parameters on the identification of acute extensive and/or multifocal renal involvement in children with febrile urinary tract infections (UTI).
To investigate the accuracy of renal point of care ultrasound (POCUS) for the detection of hydronephrosis in children with a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Actinobaculum schaalii is a uropathogen resistant to ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
Renal transplant recipients (RTR) are highly susceptible to urinary tract infections (UTIs) with over 50% of patients having at least one UTI within the first year.
Fournier gangrene (FG), a form of necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum and genitals, with high morbidity and mortality in the general population, carries the additional risk of involvement of the peritoneal catheter tunnel and peritoneal cavity in patients on chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD).
OBJECTIVE: Although patients with urinary tract infections (UTIs) are usually managed as outpatients, a percentage of them requires hospitalization.
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most frequent severe bacterial infection in infants.
OBJECTIVE: Recently, many articles reported increased incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) due to Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the relationship between obesity and febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) in young children.
BACKGROUND: Inadequate empirical antimicrobial therapy (IEAT) in intensive care unit (ICU) is associated with adverse outcomes.
We present a case of bilateral adrenal haemorrhage (BAH) associated with heparin-induced thrombocytopaenia (HIT) in a 61-year-old man admitted to hospital for the treatment of Fournier's gangrene.
INTRODUCTION: Uncomplicated urinary tract infection (uUTI) is a common reason for seeing a GP.
PURPOSE: Patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) are usually at greater risk for acquiring urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is a common clinical finding characterized by the presence of bacteria in the urine of an individual without signs or symptoms suggestive of urinary tract infection.
BACKGROUND: Overuse of fluoroquinolone antibiotics is associated with outbreaks of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea and increasing resistance in gram-negative organisms.
OBJECTIVES: Ertapenem is a broad-spectrum carbapenem antibiotic used to treat severe bacterial infections.
OBJECTIVES: Moderate alcohol consumption can impair host defence against viral infections.
INTRODUCTION: Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry is widely established as a technique in clinical microbiology laboratories for the identification of microorganisms.
