Urinary tract infections develop when a temporary or permanent breach in host defence mechanisms allows virulent microbes to adhere, multiply and persist within the urinary tract. UTIs are most commonly caused by bacteria, although fungi and viruses may infect the urinary tract. This chapter covers the aetiopathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and complications of UTIs.
