Abstract

Infection of the urinary tract has been described for nearly two centuries, yet the diagnosis, localization of infection, outcome, and management of UTI continue to generate significant problems. The two basic aims of treatment of UTI are the relief of symptoms and the prevention, or at least limitation, of damage to the renal parenchyma. The initial choice of an antimicrobial in the patient with a suspected UTI is based on knowledge of the expected organisms and their antimicrobial susceptibilities. The spectrum of urinary pathogens and their antibiotic susceptibility patterns in our geographical area are presented. Moreover therapeutic regimens in the treatment of upper and lower UTI are discussed.
