One of the most prevalent infections that affect individuals is urinary tract infection. When uropathogenic bacteria, mainly Escherichia coli, rise from the perineum into the bladder and overcome the host's innate immunity, uncomplicated infections occur most commonly in otherwise healthy women. Complicated infections can occur in patients who have a urinary tract anatomical or functional abnormalities. The diagnosis is made based on the symptoms, and urinalysis improves diagnostic precision. Urine culture is critical in cases of severe recurrent, or complicated infection, as well as in cases when the diagnosis is ambiguous, such as in children and the elderly. Most ladies with short-term symptoms don't need to see a doctor.
