Management of suspected bacterial urinary tract infection in adults

Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network

For patients with symptoms of urinary tract infection (UTI) and bacteriuria, the main aim of treatment is relief of symptoms. Secondary outcomes are adverse effects of treatment or recurrence of symptoms. For asymptomatic patients, the main outcome from treatment is prevention of future symptomatic episodes.

This Guidelines summary covers management of bacterial UTI in women, pregnant women, men, and patients with catheters.
