Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection affecting part of the urinary tract. When it affects the lower urethra, it is known as simple cystitis (bladder infection), when it affects the upper urinary tract, which is called pyelonephritis (renal infection). Symptoms of lower urinary tract infections include urination, pain, and single or frequent urination or urinary impulse. Symptoms of pyelonephritis are accompanied by fever and hypochondriac pain (side of the body) in addition to symptoms of lower urinary tract infection.
In children, fever may be the only symptom of urinary tract infection (UTI). Because of the lack of more obvious symptoms, girls who are under two years old or uncircumcised boys (6~12 years old) suffer fever at less than one year, and many medical societies recommend urine culture. Babies may have poor diet, vomiting, sleep, or signs of jaundice. In older children, new urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) may occur.
