Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are defined as the presence of a significant number of pathogenic bacteria in appropriately collected urine. They result in over seven million office visits with an estimated one million episodes of UTI-related illness requiring hospitalizations each year. Among children, 1 in 20 girls and 1 in 50 boys have a UTI annually (Stull TL, LiPuma JJ, Med Clin North Am 75:287-98, 1991).
