A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection of the bladder and associated structures. In cases of uncomplicated UTI—also known as cystitis or lower UTI—the patient has no structural abnormality or comorbidities, such as diabetes, an immunocompromised state, or pregnancy. Some of the more typical complaints include urinary urgency, urinary frequency, suprapubic discomfort or pain, and dysuria (pain with urination). The chances of a woman developing a UTI in their lifetime is quite high, as nearly two in five women will do so. It is therefore one of the most common infections in women. UTIs are uncommon in circumcised men, and, by definition, a male UTI is considered complicated.
Many cases of uncomplicated UTIs will resolve spontaneously, without treatment, but many patients seek therapy for symptom relief. Treatment is largely centered on preventing complications, such as renal spread, leading to organ compromise or bloodstream infections. These complications, in turn, may have sequelae such as hypertension from nephron destruction.
