Urinary infections and their consequences constitute a very large proportion of the urological problems of childhood, and although modern drugs have given us an effective weapon against the acute invasions, the slow deterioration of renal function which results from a chronic inflammatory process is still a common cause of death in urinary disease. The urological surgeon is largely pre-occupied with infections complicating congenital anomalies or calculous disease, and the importance of these factors is repeatedly emphasized throughout this volume, yet spontaneous infection of the anatomically normal urinary tract is a common disorder of childhood. Prompt recognition and early medical treatment of such infection will cut short a disease which often leads to renal failure and hypertension in early adult life.
