UTI in Children! UTI in Children!

Alternate Name/s:

  • Cystitis

  • Pyelonephritis

Overview:UTI is a bacterial infection of the urinary tract. Different parts of the urinary system are kidneys, urinary bladder, ureters and urethra. Ureters are a pair of tubes which drain urine from each kidney to the urinary bladder. Urethra is the tube that voids the urine from urinary bladder to outside.

 

  • In boys, UTI is most common before 1 year of age and in girls around 3 years of age.

  • The most common causative organism for UTI in children is E. coli. E. coli is normally found in stool and moves to urethra from anus causing UTI.

  • Klebsiella and Pseudomonas are other causative organisms and mostly detected in cases of recurrent UTI.
