This guideline is to provide assistance to clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of two specific types of urinary tract infections (UTIs): uncomplicated, acute, symptomatic bacterial cystitis and acute pyelonephritis in women.

Nosocomial C. difficile infection, which was associated with diarrhea in about one third of cases, is frequently transmitted among hospitalized patients and that the organism is often present on the hands of hospital personnel caring for such patients.
A prospective study of risk factors for symptomatic urinary tract infection in young women.
Among sexually active young women the incidence of symptomatic urinary tract infection is high, and the risk is strongly and independently associated with recent sexual intercourse, recent use of a diaphragm with spermicide, and a history of recurrent urinary tract infections.

The presence of exfoliated IBCs and filamentous bacteria in the urines of women with acute cystitis suggests that the IBC pathogenic pathway characterized in the murine model may occur in humans.
Increasing Antimicrobial Resistance and the Management of Uncomplicated Community-Acquired Urinary Tract Infections
The problem of antimicrobial resistance in acute uncomplicated community-acquired UTI is highlighted, focusing on TMPSMX resistance, and the few available data regarding clinical outcomes associated with in vitro resistance are summarized.
Management of urinary tract infections in adults.
This review will highlight recent advances in the treatment of patients in each of these categories, emphasizing cost-effective strategies that may be particularly important in the coming era.
A controlled trial of intravaginal estriol in postmenopausal women with recurrent urinary tract infections.
The intravaginal administration of estriol prevents recurrent urinary tract infection in postmenopausal women, probably by modifying the vaginal flora.
Increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among uropathogens causing acute uncomplicated cystitis in women.
While the prevalence of resistance to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, ampicillin, and cephalothin increased significantly among uropathogens causing acute cystitis, resistance to nitrofurantoin and ciprofloxacin remained infrequent.
