In a longitudinal prospective study 58 schoolgirls with covert bacteriuria were followed up for an average of 11.2 years (range 8.8 to 13.5 years). Intravenous urography was carried out at the start of the study (aged 4 to 11 years) and after completion of the follow up period (aged 14.8 to 22.3 years). After random allocation 27 of these girls received(More)
AIM To assess the outcome of imaging investigations carried out in children with urinary tract infection (UTI), to compare the investigations with national guidelines, and to assess the impact on management. METHODS Retrospective review of inpatients and outpatients, aged 0-12 years, referred to the University Hospital of Wales Healthcare Trust between(More)
Urinary tract anomalies were prospectively investigated with ultrasound in 29 children with functional constipation. These children were compared before and after treatment with 451 age matched healthy controls without constipation. The bladder residue and upper renal tract dilatation after micturition were significantly increased in the group with(More)
In 75 schoolgirls aged 5-11 with untreated covert coliform bacteriuria who were followed up to 4 years, infection cleared in 16 (21%), cleared and recurred in 37 (50%) and persisted in 22 (29%). Clearance of bacteriuria was significantly (P less than .05) more frequent in girls with normal radiological findings than in those with abnormal findings. In 31(More)
A 12 year old boy presented with primary nocturnal enuresis. Investigation showed extensive bilateral nephrocalcinosis of no obvious or recognised cause. Persistent severe renal hypercalciuria was confirmed by an intravenous calcium infusion. Idiopathic hypercalciuria is not a common cause of nephrocalcinosis and has not previously been described in a child.
AIMS To determine: (1) whether children diagnosed with a urinary tract infection (UTI) visited their general practitioner (GP) more frequently before the diagnosis of UTI was established compared to children never diagnosed with a UTI; and (2) whether those children with evidence of renal scarring at their first diagnosed UTI visited their GPs more(More)
Fresh urinary isolates were examined by immunofluorescence with polyclonal rabbit antibodies against type 1 and P fimbriae. This procedure showed P-fimbriate Escherichia coli in 22 of 24 samples from patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria, 24 of 26 samples from patients with cystitis, and 6 of 6 samples from patients with pyelonephritis. Type 1 fimbriae(More)
