Urinary tract infection

  1. 1. Urinary Tract Infection DR BADRIYA AL-MAHROUQI 12/11/2017
  2. 2. Objectives By the end of this presentation the participants will be able to: ◦ list lower and upper urinary tract parts. ◦ Define urinary tract infection. ◦ Explain the pathophysiology of urinary tract infection ◦ List the most risk factors for urinary tract infection ◦ Diagnose urinary tract infection ◦ Manage urinary tract infection in different sex and age category.
  3. 3. Introduction A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra. Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than are men. Among adults aged 20 to 50 years, UTIs are about 50- fold more common in women.
  4. 4. In women in this age group, most UTIs are cystitis or pyelonephritis. In men of the same age, most UTIs are urethritis or prostatitis. The incidence of UTI increases in patients > 50 years, but the female: male ratio decreases because of the increasing frequency of prostate enlargement and instrumentation in men. Introduction
  5. 5. UrinaryTract Anatomy
  6. 6. Pathophysiology
  7. 7. Etiology The bacteria that most often cause cystitis and pyelonephritis are the following: Enteric, usually gram-negative aerobic bacteria (most often) Escherichia coli : 75 to 95% of cases. Klebsiella Proteus mirabilis Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Gram-positive bacteria (less often) Staphylococcus saprophyticus is isolated in 5 to 10% of bacterial UTIs. Enterococcus faecalis (group D streptococci) Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococci) In hospitalized patients, E. coli accounts for about 50% of cases. The gram-negative species Klebsiella, Proteus, Enterobacter, Pseudomonas, and Serratia account for about 40%, and the gram-positive bacterial cocci, E. faecalis, S. saprophyticus, and Staphylococcus aureus account for the remainder.
  8. 8. Part of urinary tract affected Signs and symptoms Kidneys (acute pyelonephritis) •Upper back and side (flank) pain •High fever •Shaking and chills •Nausea •Vomiting Bladder (cystitis) •Pelvic pressure •Lower abdomen discomfort •Frequent, painful urination •Blood in urine Urethra (urethritis) •Burning with urination •Discharge
  9. 9. Uncomplicated UTI is usually considered to be cystitis or pyelonephritis that occurs in premenopausal adult women with no structural or functional abnormality of the urinary tract and who are not pregnant and have no significant comorbidity that could lead to more serious outcomes.
  10. 10. Complicated UTI can involve either sex at any age. A UTI is considered complicated if: 1. the patient is a child, is pregnant, 2. the patient has any of the following: ◦ A structural or functional urinary tract abnormality and obstruction of urine flow ◦ A comorbidity that increases risk of acquiring infection or resistance to treatment, such as poorly controlled diabetes, chronic kidney disease, or immunocompromise. ◦ Recent instrumentation or surgery of the urinary tract
  11. 11. Complication Recurrent infections, especially in women who experience two or more UTIs in a six-month period or four or more within a year. Permanent kidney damage from an acute or chronic kidney infection (pyelonephritis) due to an untreated UTI. Increased risk in pregnant women of delivering low birth weight or premature infants. Urethral narrowing (stricture) in men from recurrent urethritis, previously seen with gonococcal urethritis. Sepsis, a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection, especially if the infection works its way up your urinary tract to your kidneys.
  12. 12. Diagnosis - Urinary tract infection - Upper or lower - Simple or complicated
  13. 13. Urine collection clean-catch, midstream specimen, A specimen obtained by catheterization If a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is suspected, a urethral swab for STD testing is obtained prior to voiding.
  14. 14. Urine testing: Dipstick tests: tested rapidly Nitrate positive: is highly specific for UTI, but the test is not very sensitive. The leukocyte esterase test is very specific for the presence of > 10 WBCs/μL and is fairly sensitive. Microscopic examination: Pyuria : Most truly infected patients have > 10 WBCs/μL. The presence of bacteria in the absence of pyuria:due to contamination during sampling. Microscopic hematuria occurs in up to 50% of patients, but gross hematuria is uncommon. WBC casts: pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis, and noninfective tubulointerstitial nephritis. Pyuria in the absence of bacteriuria and of UTI is possible, for example, if patients have nephrolithiasis, a uroepithelial tumor, appendicitis, or inflammatory bowel disease or if the sample is contaminated by vaginal WBCs.
  15. 15. Cultures are recommended in complicated UTI or an indication for treatment of bacteriuria. Common examples include the following: Pregnant women Postmenopausal women Men Prepubertal children Patients with urinary tract abnormalities or recent instrumentation Patients with immunosuppression or significant comorbidities Patients whose symptoms suggest pyelonephritis or sepsis Patients with recurrent UTIs (≥ 3/yr)
  16. 16. Urinary tract imaging choices include ultrasonography, CT, and IVU. Occasionally, voiding cystourethrography, retrograde urethrography, or cystoscopy is warranted. Children with UTI often require imaging. Most adults do not require assessment for structural abnormalities unless the following occur: The patient has ≥ 2 episodes of pyelonephritis. Infections are complicated. Nephrolithiasis is suspected. There is painless gross hematuria or new renal insufficiency. Fever persists for ≥ 72 h.

  18. 18. Differential Diagnosis Acute urethral syndrome: which occurs in women, is a syndrome involving dysuria, frequency, and pyuria (dysuria-pyuria syndrome), which thus resembles cystitis. However, in acute urethral syndrome (unlike in cystitis), routine urine cultures are either negative Urethritis: is a possible cause because causative organisms include Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum, which are not detected on routine urine culture. Noninfectious causes: anatomic abnormalities (eg, urethral stenosis), physiologic abnormalities (eg, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction), hormonal imbalances (eg, atrophic urethritis), localized trauma, GI system symptoms, and inflammation.
  19. 19. Management Urethritis Sexually active patients with symptoms are usually treated presumptively for STDs pending test results. A typical regimen is ceftriaxone 250 mg IM plus either azithromycin 1 g po once or doxycycline 100 mg po bid for 7 days. Cystitis First-line treatment of uncomplicated cystitis is nitrofurantoin 100 mg po bid for 3 days (it is contraindicated if creatinine clearance is < 60 mL/min), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) 160/800 mg po bid for 3 days,
  20. 20. Management Acute pyelonephritis Antibiotics are required. Outpatient treatment with oral antibiotics is possible if all of the following criteria are satisfied: Patients are expected to be adherent Patients are immunocompetent Patients have no nausea or vomiting or evidence of volume depletion or septicemia Patients have no factors suggesting complicated UTI Ciprofloxacin 500 mg po bid for 7 days A 2nd option is usually trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) 160/800 mg po bid for 14 days.
  21. 21. Alternative management cranberry concentrates : for adult Increase fluid intake Ural : urine alkiniser
  22. 22. Children
  23. 23. Antibiotics that can be used to treat UTI in children Therapeutic dose Trimethoprim (TMP) ‘Alprim’ •4 mg/kg BD Max: 150 mg BD Trimethoprim–sulfamethoxazole (TMP–SMX) ‘Bactrim’ •4 + 20 mg/kg BD Max: 16 0+ 180mg BD Cephalexin ‘Keflex’ •12.5mg/kg QID Max: 500 mg QID Amoxycillin and Clavulanic acid ‘Augmentin’ •22.5 + 3.2 mg/kg BD Max: 875 + 125 mg BD Nitrofurantonin ‘Macrodantin’ •Not recommended for therapeutic UTI treatment in children
  24. 24. Adult
  25. 25. Non-pregnant Women Consider empirical treatment with an antibiotic for otherwise healthy women aged less than 65 years presenting with severe or ≥ 3 symptoms of UTI. Explore alternative diagnoses and consider pelvic examination for women with symptoms of vaginal itch or discharge. Use dipstick tests to guide treatment decisions in otherwise healthy women under 65 years of age presenting with mild or ≤2 symptoms of UTI.
  26. 26. Antibiotic treatment of LUTI Do not treat non-pregnant women (of any age) with asymptomatic bacteriuria with an antibiotic. Treat non-pregnant women of any age with symptoms or signs of acute LUTI with a three day course of trimethoprim or nitrofurantoin. Particular care should be taken when prescribing nitrofurantoin in the elderly, who may be at increased risk of toxicity. Take urine for culture to guide change of antibiotic for patients who do not respond to trimethoprim or nitrofurantoin.
  27. 27. Pregnant Women Symptomatic bacteriuria Standard quantitative urine culture should be performed routinely at first antenatal visit. Confirm the presence of bacteriuria in urine with a second urine culture. Do not use dipstick testing to screen for bacterial UTI at the first or subsequent antenatal visits. Treat asymptomatic bacteruria in pregnant women with antibiotics
  28. 28. Pregnant Women Antibiotic treatment Treat symptomatic UTI in pregnant women with an antibiotic. Take a single urine sample for culture before empiric antibiotic treatment is started. A seven day course of treatment (amoxicillin – cephalexin- augmentin)is normally sufficient. Given the risks of symptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy, a urine culture should be performed seven days after completion of antibiotic treatment as a test of cure.
  29. 29. Men Urinary tract infections in men are generally viewed as complicated because they result from an anatomic or functional anomaly or instrumentation of the genitourinary tract. Conditions like prostatitis, chlamydial infection and epididymitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of men with acute dysuria or frequency and appropriate diagnostic tests should be considered. In all men with symptoms of UTI a urine sample should be taken for culture. Antibiotic treatment Due to their ability to penetrate prostatic fluid, quinolones (ciprofloxacillin) rather than nitrofurantoin or cephalosporins are indicated. Treat bacterial UTI empirically with a quinolone in men with symptoms suggestive of prostatitis. four week course is appropriate for men with symptoms suggestive of prostatitis. Refer men for urological investigation if they have symptoms of upper urinary tract infection, fail to respond to appropriate antibiotics or have recurrent UTI.
  30. 30. Patients On Catheter Do not rely on classical clinical symptoms or signs for predicting the likelihood of symptomatic UTI in catheterised patients. Signs and symptoms compatible with catheter-associated UTI include: ◦ new onset or worsening of fever, rigors ◦ altered mental status, malaise, or lethargy ◦ flank pain or costovertebral angle tenderness ◦ acute haematuria
  31. 31. Patients On Catheter Do not use dipstick testing to diagnose UTI in patients with catheters. Antibiotic treatment Do not treat catheterised patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria with an antibiotic. Do not routinely prescribe antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent symptomatic UTI in patients with catheters.
  32. 32. Prevention Drink plenty of liquids, especially water. Drink cranberry juice. Wipe from front to back. Empty your bladder soon after intercourse. Avoid potentially irritating feminine products. Change your birth control method.
  33. 33. In women who experience ≥ 3 UTIs/yr, behavioral measures are recommended, If these techniques are unsuccessful, antibiotic prophylaxis should be considered. Common options are continuous and postcoital prophylaxis. Continuous prophylaxis commonly begins with a 6 mo trial. If UTI recurs after 6 mo of prophylactic therapy, prophylaxis may be reinstituted for 2 or 3 yr. TMP/SMX 40/200 mg po once/day or 3 times/wk, nitrofurantoin 50 or 100 mg po once/day, cephalexin 125 to 250 mg po once/day, Prevention
  34. 34. Postcoital prophylaxis in women may be more effective if UTIs are temporally related to sexual intercourse. Usually, a single dose of one of the drugs used for continuous prophylaxis is effective. In postmenopausal women, antibiotic prophylaxis is similar to that described previously. Additionally, topical estrogen therapy markedly reduces the incidence of recurrent UTI in women with atrophic vaginitis or atrophic urethritis. Prevention
  35. 35. summary Refer infant less than 3 months with UTI Treat children 3 months and older with UTI using Amoxicillin/ Augmnetin, send culture and consider request for ultrasound Treat non-pregnant women with 3 days Nitrofurantoin Treat asymptomatic bacteruria in pregnant women Consider STI and prostitis in male Do not give prophylaxis for adult with catheter and do not treat asymptomatic bacteruria
