The causative organisms of Urinary Tract Infection are dynamic in terms of their virulence and resistance patterns, leading to challenges in the prevention and treatment of urinary infection. This is of relevance in both primary and secondary care, and many of the challenges are similar in both developed and developing countries alike. UTI is also associated with considerable cost in terms of morbidity, economic and research expenditure.
Written by an exceptional and well-known team of clinical experts, the purpose
of Clinical Perspectives on Urinary Tract Infections is to address some key
questions facing physicians about this condition. The book is written primarily
for general physicians who wish to have a broad understanding of a number of
important issues concerning infection in parts of the urinary tract. Specialists
may also find the book useful as a quick reference guide.
