Abstract

The use of N-acetyl-β-d-glucosaminidase (NAG) to diagnose the site of urinary tract infection was studied in pediatric patients. Differentiation between upper and lower tract infections (UTI) was based on clinical grounds and on elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein and fever. NAG excretion expressed as nmol · h-1 · mg- of urinary creatinine was higher in children with upper UTI (mean ± SE 906 ± 236) than in those with lower UTI (145 ± 23) or healthy children (151.6 ± 10) (p
