Abstract

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are an important cause of morbidity in paediatrics, especially related to urinary tract malformation and neurogenic bladder dysfunction. The infection control team of Istituto Giannina Gaslini, Genova, Italy, performs a prospective survey on the epidemiology of UTI in children admitted in the hospital, and data are expressed as episodes/1000 days of hospital admission. From 2007 to 2011 there was an increase in the rate of Gram-negative UTIs, especially in the Nephrology Unit (from 11.63 to 27.48, r-coefficient 0.95, P
