Urinary tract infection (UTI) is typically defined as significant bacteriuria in the setting of symptoms of cystitis or pyelonephritis. Cystitis (bladder infection) accounts for most cases. UTIs are exceedingly common in women worldwide, accounting for more than 10 million patient visits to physicians per year in the United States alone. The incidence in men approaches that of women only in men older than 60 years.

UTIs are often associated with significant symptoms that have a major impact on quality of life. Proper approaches to asymptomatic bacteriuria are also important, given concerns about increasing antibiotic resistance. Are you familiar with key aspects of UTIs, including the latest guidelines and best practices for diagnosis and treatment? Test your knowledge with this short quiz.
