Evaluation of and Antimicrobial Therapy for Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections in Women

J D Engel et al. Urol Clin North Am. .

Abstract

The problem with recurrent urinary tract infections in women is enormous and contributes significantly to national health care costs. As the role of office urology and the external "cost-effective" pressures placed on the practicing urologist have heightened, a consistent, logical approach towards diagnosis and management of urinary tract infection becomes essential. This article briefly discusses the cause and pathophysiology behind recurrent urinary tract infections in women. A practical discussion of proper evaluation and treatment options will also be provided in hopes of offering the clinician a simple, stepwise approach to this sometimes difficult condition.
