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.

Cotrimoxazole is associated with sudden death in older patients receiving inhibitors of renin-angiotensin system
Fri, 22 May 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Evidence-Based Medicine
Commentary on: Fralick M, Macdonald EM, Gomes T, et al. Canadian Drug Safety and Effectiveness Research Network. Co-trimoxazole and sudden death in patients receiving inhibitors of renin-angiotensin system: population based study. BMJ 2014;349:g6196 . Context ACE inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are commonly prescribed to older patients with hypertension, heart failure (HF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) and may increase serum potassium (K) levels. Cotrimoxazole, a common antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections, may also raise serum K levels, especially in patients also taking other drugs that raise serum K levels such as ACEIs, ARBs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The authors examined whether sudden death is associated with the use...

Case of antibiotic-associated diarrhea caused by Staphylococcus aureus enterocolitis.
Thu, 21 May 2015 23:09:04 +0100 | American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy : AJHP
CONCLUSION: An 82-year-old man was transferred from an assisted living facility to the hospital with profuse diarrhea and dehydration. Enteric cultures were positive for methicillin-resistant S. aureus with multiple negative C. difficile toxin B assays. Appropriate therapy was delayed and the patient potentially misdiagnosed with toxin-negative C. difficile when the clinical symptoms and diagnostic testing were consistent with SEC.

Conclusion: E. coli is the most common organism causing UTIs in infants; however, other bacterial strains are frequently isolated. As a result, antibiotic prophylaxis should be more elastic and adaptable over time in order to guarantee maximum efficacy. (Source: European Journal of Pediatrics)
