Urinary tract infection (UTI) and corresponding inflammatory conditions:
  • In men, it is rare. But when it happens in sexually active men, it is frequently caused by STD.
  • In women, it is frequently caused by Escherichia coli originating from the anus.
Urethritis is inflammation of the urethra. The most common symptom is dysuria (painful urination), followed by urethral discharge / genital discharge. For treatment purposes, it is classified in two categories: In the UK, Non-specific urethritis (NSU) may be used to mean that either gonorrhoea alone, or both gonorrhoea and chlamydia has been ruled out.

Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder.

Lower UTI symptoms are

UTI treatment is usually with antibiotics like trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole

Susceptibility patterns of uropathogens identified in hospitalised children with community-acquired urinary tract infections in Thrace, Greece
Sun, 29 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance
Publication date: Available online 28 March 2015 Source:Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance Author(s): Elpis Mantadakis , Evridiki K. Vouloumanou , Maria Panopoulou , Emmanouela Tsouvala , Aggelos Tsalkidis , Athanassios Chatzimichael , Matthew E. Falagas Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infections associated with considerable morbidity and mortality, particularly in paediatric patients. The alarmingly increasing antimicrobial resistance of contemporary uropathogens in children necessitates the re-evaluation of antibiotic treatment. We evaluated uropathogens isolated from children hospitalised due to a community-acquired UTI over a 5.5-year period in a university hospital of Northern Greece and their antibiotic susceptibility patterns. The antibiotic susceptibility of ur...

Conclusion CoNS are emerging nosocomial pathogens and should not always be overlooked as contaminants. However, growth of CoNS from blood cultures and intravascular catheter tips should be clinically correlated and carefully interpreted. As many CoNS strains exhibit drug resistance, antimicrobial susceptibility profile should be determined prior to treatment of these infections. (Source: Medical Journal Armed Forces India)

A 60-year-old woman who was wheelchair bound presented to the emergency department (ED) with right-hand cellulitis and a urinary tract infection. The patient’s medical history included multiple substance abuse, hepatitis C, a mitral valve replacement, and multiple strokes. She was nonverbal and fully dependent on caretakers. She was treated with IV ceftriaxone in the ED and sent home with a prescription for oral cephalexin. One week later, she returned to the ED critically ill with hypotension, altered mental status, and an erythematous rash on her upper extremities. (Source: AORN Journal)
