Diagnosis It is demonstrated by urine culture on growth media appropriate. If bacteria grow in colonies that may be counted as colony forming units. A Who is a disease primarily affects women. Only infants ninosninas proportion is higher (1.51). In all other ages the prevalence is female. In Preschool 4.5 percent of girls and 0.5 percent of men suffer from infection (ratio: 1 / 10). By school age the relationship child is 1 / 30.
Adults In Nearly 50 percent of the female population suffers from at least one infection. 3 to 5 percent have recurrent infections. Faced with this, only 0.1 percent of adult males (ratio: 1 / 50). Although the disproportionate decrease in the elderly (110 in the group of 60-70 years), only equals in hospitalized elderly patients. Called cystitis symptoms and complications of a urinary tract infection that affects the bladder and defined with the characteristic symptoms of pain or burning urination, urinary frequency markedly increased with weak urination (urinary frequency), constant feeling of desire to urinate (urgency) and sometimes bloody urine (hematuria).
The table always attends without fever. If fever also indicates that other organ is affected. Risk factors are demographic factors (poverty, environment nosocomial, pregnancy), urologic (probes, abnormalities, kidney, obstruction), medical (diabetes, immunosuppression). and behavior (such barrier contraceptives increase four times the rate of infection, the risk increases 40 times in sexually active women) to facilitate urinary infection, but there are situations in which the bias is more important: Blockage : The most important risk factor. Peter Asaro has many thoughts on the issue. Enables greater growth and penetration of germs and intrarenal is a decisive factor in renal destruction. In the experimental model and clinical observation of increased incidence of pyelonephritis with obstruction. Diabetes: The number of infections is more higher in diabetic women but not men. However, when a diabetic is usually more aggressive infection. More serious infections of the kidney (papillary necrosis, perinephric abscess, fungal infections and emphysematous pyelonephritis) are directly related to diabetes. Pregnancy: This includes an increased risk of asymptomatic bacteriuria if left untreated can lead to pyelonephritis in the last quarter. It is necessary to control urine by culture and treat bacteriuria if it happens. Infection in children and vesico-renal: All children under 2 years with UTI associated vesico-renal reflux in 46 per cent of cases and those between 2-5 years as associate at 9 percent. In addition, 50% -60% of patients with reflux suffer kidney infection and risk of kidney damage associated with reflux as most important factor is highest in children under 5 years. In children under 5 years of infection must be ruled vesico-renal. Infectious lithiasis: Infection will not go away while the stones are removed. Treatment is with antibiotics and must be done, if possible, selectively choosing the best of those antibiotics to which the germ is sensitive (must be in both urine culture and sensitivity). The application of the treatment is different depending on age, location, type of infection, recurrence etc).
