Recurrent urinary tract infection - Abstract

Recurrent urinary tract infection involves mainly women and exhibits an ecological as well as economical risk.

4% of all urinary tract infection are recurrent and usually secondary to general or local abnormalities. A multidisciplinary medical and surgical team (urology, nephrology, bacteriology, infectious disease) best performs diagnosis and treatment as well as rules out reversible etiology. Treatment relies on behavioral changes before offering cranberry products and/or antibioprophylaxis if necessary.
