Abstract

Management of infants and children with acute UTI must be undertaken with four major goals in mind: (1) the diagnosis should be properly documented to avoid unnecessary radiologic studies and follow-up; (2) the structural status of the urinary tract must be delineated by radiologic techniques in infancy or early children as a basis for formulating long term management; (3) children with structural abnormalities of the urinary system with or without recurrent bacteriuria must be followed up for many years; (4) antibiotic therapy should be given for a minimum of 3 to 7 days in children with uncomplicated UTI and for 10 days or longer in those with suspected or proved pyelonephritis.
