Introduction To Urinary Tract Infections (Utis)

Most cases of cystitis and pyelonephritis caused by bacteria. The most common bacterial pathogens are fungi (Candida species usually) and, more rarely, mycobacteria, viruses and parasites. Bacterial diseases affect patients who are immunocompromised as a rule; have diabetes, obstruction or structural abnormalities of the urinary tract; or who had recently Harntraktinstrumentation.

Urinary tract infections (UTI) can be divided into the renal concerned infections of the upper urinary tract (pyelonephritis) and those of the lower urinary tract, which bladder (cystitis), urethra (urethritis) or prostate (prostatitis) concern. In practice, however, and especially in children, the differentiation of the places of origin can be difficult to impossible. In addition, infections often spread from one place to another. Although urethritis and prostatitis are infections that affect the urinary tract, the term usually refers to HWI pyelonephritis and cystitis. Most cases of cystitis and pyelonephritis caused by bacteria. The most common bacterial pathogens are fungi (Candida species usually) and, more rarely, mycobacteria, viruses and parasites. Bacterial diseases affect patients who are immunocompromised as a rule; have diabetes, obstruction or structural abnormalities of the urinary tract; or who had recently Harntraktinstrumentation. Unlike adenoviruses (in hemorrhagic cystitis implies), viruses make a significant contribution to urinary tract infection in immunocompetent patients. The most common parasitic causes of UTI are filariasis, trichomoniasis, leishmaniasis, malaria and schistosomiasis. Of the parasitic diseases only the trichomoniasis in the US and Europe is common, usually as a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Urethritis is usually caused by an STD. Prostatitis is usually caused by a bacterium, and is sometimes caused by a STD.
