  3. 3. <ul><li>Clinical Manifestation </li></ul><ul><li>3 basic forms : </li></ul><ul><li>1.

Cystitis </li></ul><ul><li>- involves bladder and symptoms of dysuria, urgency, frequency, suprapubic pain, incontinence and malodorous urine </li></ul><ul><li>- no fever and does not result in renal injury </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>3. Asymptomatic bacteriuria </li></ul><ul><li>- + urine culture w/o any manifestation of infection </li></ul><ul><li>- occurs exclusively in girls </li></ul><ul><li>- benign and does not cause renal injury </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Pathogenesis </li></ul><ul><li>route of infection: </li></ul><ul><li>- ascending infection </li></ul><ul><li>- anatomic abnormalities </li></ul><ul><li>- uroepithelial adherence </li></ul><ul><li>- bacterial virulence </li></ul>

  8. 8. <ul><li>Diagnosis…. </li></ul><ul><li>Radiological Evaluation </li></ul><ul><li>Guidelines for selection of pxs w/ UTI for radiologic evaluation: </li></ul><ul><li>- all neonates w/ 1st UTI </li></ul><ul><li>- all males w/ 1 st UTI at any age </li></ul><ul><li>- all pxs w/ recurrent UTI </li></ul><ul><li>- all pxs w/ pyelonephritis </li></ul><ul><li>Intravenous Pyelography (IVP) </li></ul><ul><li>- information about renal size, renal scars and state of pelvocalyceal system </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram) </li></ul><ul><li>- definitive test to document VUR </li></ul><ul><li>- indicated in children younger than 5 yr w/ UTI, any child w/ febrile UTI, school-aged girls who had 2 or more UTIs </li></ul><ul><li>- any male w/ UTI </li></ul><ul><li>Ultrasound of the kidney and urinary bladder </li></ul><ul><li>- screening procedure of choice </li></ul><ul><li>- should be obtained to rule out hydronephrosis and renal or perirenal abscesses </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Treatment </li></ul><ul><li>- Trimethoprim Sulfamethoxazole </li></ul><ul><li>- Nitrofurantoin </li></ul><ul><li>- Ampicillin </li></ul><ul><li>- Amoxicillin </li></ul><ul><li>- Aminoglycosides </li></ul><ul><li>- Cephalosporins </li></ul><ul><li>Conservative: </li></ul><ul><li>- Increased oral fluids intake </li></ul><ul><li>- Regular and complete bladder emptying </li></ul><ul><li>- Increased dietary fiber intake </li></ul>
