A urinary tract infection (UTI) is defined as an inflammatory response of the urothelium to bacterial invasion that is usually associated with bacteriuria and pyuria. More than 7 million office visits are due to UTIs each year, and over 1 million hospital admissions are complicated by UTIs. These statistics reflect the broad prevalence of this diagnosis, which requires a different workup and treatment plan respective of the patient’s age, sex, and the overall clinical scenario.
