Why ?
 Common

 Difficult to identify

 Significant complications

 Guideline for Management ( imaging, prophylaxis and
  prolonged follow up )

 Infection of kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethera

 Upper Urinary tract infection - Pyelonephritis

 Lower urinary tract infection- Cystitis, Urethritis
Which Organism?
 Most common organism is

 (a) Klebsiella

 (b) E. Coli

 (c) Pseudomonas
(1) Atypical UTI : Seriously ill
                   Raised creatinine
                   Failure to respond to Tx within 48 hours
                   Infection with non E.Coli organisms
(2) Recurrent UTI :Two or more episodes of UTI with
                 acute pyelonephritis/upper urinary
                 tract infection
                 Three or more episodes of UTI
                 with cystitis/lower urinary tract infection
 One of the most common infections of the childhood

 Age under one M > F     why?
 Age above one   F>M

 4% of boys and 12 % of girls will have had UTI by the age of
  16 years
 Of these : 4 % will have kidneys scars
             50 % will develop hypertension
             10% of those scarred will develop renal failure
                              Assess Symptoms & Signs

   Assess the risk of serious illnesses in line with ‘Feverish illnesses in children’

             Collect the urine sample using a method suitable for age

              Assess symptoms and signs to identify or exclude acute
                   pyelonephritis/upper urinary tract infection
                Assess risk factors for serious underlying pathology

        Provide acute management according to age group and presence or
           absence of acute pyelonephritis/upper urinary tract infection

         Arrange imaging tests if required using age, presence of atypical
               illness and recurrence as criteria for choice of tests

        Arrange follow up for infants and children with recurrent UTI,
             risk factors, atypical illness and abnormal imaging
Risk Factors
 antenatally-diagnosed renal abnormality
 family history of vesicoureteric reflux ? (VUR) or renal disease
 history suggesting previous UTI or confirmed previous UTI
 recurrent fever of uncertain origin
 poor urine flow ( phimosis)
 dysfunctional voiding
 constipation why?
 abdominal mass, evidence of spinal lesion
 poor growth
 high blood pressure
 blood group Lewis antigen

 Can occur

(1) within 24 hours

(2) in 72 hours

(3) in 5-7 days
When to check urine sample

 Symptoms and signs suggestive of urinary tract infection

 Unexplained fever of 38 C or higher ( a urine sample tested
  after 24 hours at the latest)

 with an alternative site of infection but who remain unwell
Collecting Urine Sample

 Clean catch urine sample is the recommended method

 Non-invasive : Urine collection pad

 Catheter sample or SPA

 If the sample needs to be cultured but cannot be
 cultured within 4 hours of collection, either
 refrigerate it or preserve it with boric acid
Diagnosis and Management
                     Age under 3 months

 Refer to paediatric specialist care.

 Urine sample for urgent microscopy and culture.

Referral And Assessment
 Recurrent UTI or abnormal imaging results should be
  assessed by a paediatric specialist.

 Assessment of infants and children with renal parenchymal
  defects should include height, weight,blood pressure and
  routine testing for proteinuria.

 Infants and children with a minor, unilateral renal
  parenchymal defect do not need long-term follow-up unless
  they have recurrent UTI or family history or lifestyle risk
  factors for hypertension.
Follow up
Long Term F/U

•Infants and children who have bilateral renal abnormalities,
impaired kidney function, raised blood pressure and/or
proteinuria should receive monitoring and appropriate
management by a paediatric nephrologist to slow the
progression of chronic kidney disease.

No F/U

No imaging investigtion- no f/u
Normal investigation results
Asymptomatic after an episode of UTI
Asymptomatic bacteuria
Information following UTI

 The need for treatment, the importance of completing
  treatment and advice about prevention and long-term
  management (if appropriate)
 The possibility of a UTI recurring and prevention of recurrance
 recognising symptoms quickly
 prognosis
 Most recover quickly and completely with antibiotic treatment.

 Recurrence of urinary tract infection is more likely in:
   Younger children i.e. aged less than 6 months
   Girls compared to boys
   Vesicoureteral reflux

 Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) is found in about 1% of normal
  infants and normally resolves over several years.However, it is
  a risk factor for pyelonephritis, which can cause renal
  scarring, which can lead to hypertension & impaired renal
  DON’T : Treat asymptomatic bacteuria
          Use antibiotic prophylaxis routinely after 1st UTI

   DO   : Use different antibiotic, not a higher dose of same
          antibiotic, for children who are already on
          prophylactic antibiotic

 A Cochrane systematic review suggests that treatment for 2-4
 days seems to be as effective as treatment for 7 - 14 days for
          eradicating lower tract UTI in children.
