Abstract

Retrospective studies have been carried out on 73 bone marrow transplanted children in order to determine the incidence of urinary tract infection. In spite of the deep and prolonged conditioning regimen related immunosuppression (median range of aplasia from - 1 pre- to + 14 days post-BMT) and multiple risk factors, systemic (mucosal and epidermal damage, long time of admission, central venous catheter) and localized to urinary tract (27 hemorrhagic cystitis among 72 patients conditioned with cyclophosphamide; glycosuria; 8/73 bladder catheterism), only 1 out of 73 patients developed bacterial and 4 out of 73 viral urinary infection (Cytomegalovirus). This good result could be related to the cleaning and prophylactic measures adopted.
