Urinary Tract Infections


Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) can occur for different reasons in both males and females. If the UTI affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection or cystitis, and if it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as a kidney infection. The Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Algorithm and the Recurrent UTI Prevention Strategies handout might prove useful.
