OBJECTIVE: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) in childhood are considered a risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD), but this association is poorly verified. We wanted to determine the etiologic fraction of UTIs in childhood as a cause of CKD. METHODS: A systematic literature search on the association between childhood UTIs and CKD was conducted, and data for patients with CKD in the area of 1 tertiary care hospital were reviewed. RESULTS: In our literature search, we found no patients among the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Clinical characteristics of children with congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract and predictive factors of chronic kidney disease.

The diagnosis of PUV, proteinuria on the first admission, vesicoureteral reflux, and oligohydramnios were identified as independent predictors for CKD in the multivariate logistic regression analysis.

Long-term consequences and prevention of urinary tract infections in childhood

Taking into account the relatively innocent nature of childhood UTIs, cranberry juice offers an alternative to antimicrobials for preventing UTIs in children and its effects on the normal flora were evaluated with two randomized controlled trials.

Urinary Tract Infection in Children: An Update

The 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics Urinary Tract Infection guideline addressed “areas for research” identifying multiple areas where evidence at the time of the publication was lacking, and discussed the evidence development in those identified areas.

Swiss consensus recommendations on urinary tract infections in children

Multidisciplinary Swiss consensus recommendations were developed by members of Swiss pediatric infectious diseases, nephrology, and urology societies giving the clinician clear recommendations in regard to diagnosis, type and duration of therapy, antimicrobial treatment options, indication for imaging, and antibiotic prophylaxis.

Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract in Adolescents

Care of children with chronic kidney disease due to congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract should be undertaken by a multidisciplinary team that includes both a pediatric urologist and pediatric nephrologist.

Pyuria, urinary tract infection and renal outcome in patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3–5

It is concluded that CKD stage 3–5 patients with frequent pyuria or UTI episodes have increased risks of renal outcomes, and both groups were associated with clinical outcomes.

Urinary tract infections in infants and children: Diagnosis and management.

Urinary tract infections per se do not cause end-stage kidney disease

The frequency with which urinary tract infection in the absence of concomitant underlying abnormalities caused end-stage renal disease (ESRD) was determined, with one child appearing to be the only 1 of 102 children who developed ESRD because of acquired renal injury in which UTIs were an important contributing factor.

Girls prone to urinary infections followed into adulthood. Indices of renal disease

Within this range of renal function, the level of albumin in urine did not predict the degree of renal scarring, and the renal function was well preserved and the incidence of hypertension low.

Renal function 16 to 26 years after the first urinary tract infection in childhood.

The GFR 2 decades after the first recognized UTI in childhood was well preserved, however, a significant reduction of individual renal GFR in the unilaterally scarred kidneys indicates that further follow-up is required.

Chronic interstitial nephritis: etiologic factors.

It is concluded that interstitial nephritis is a common form of chronic renal disease, is seldom idiopathic, rarely results from bacterial infection alone in adults, and frequently results from analgesic abuse in the United States.

Diseases causing end-stage renal failure in New South Wales.

Greater use of micturating cystography and cystoscopy and routine urine testing for salicylate are advocated for earlier diagnosis of the major causes of "pyelonephritis".

Practice Parameter: The Diagnosis, Treatment, and Evaluation of the Initial Urinary Tract Infection in Febrile Infants and Young Children

Eleven recommendations are proposed for the diagnosis, management, and follow-up evaluation of infants and young children with unexplained fever who are later found to have a diagnosed UTI.

Childhood reflux and urinary infection: a follow-up of 10–41 years in 226 adults

There is a need for early recognition and treatment of children with VUR and UTI to limit scar development and the adults with complications were those with extensive renal scarring and at least borderline hypertension in childhood.

Development of hypertension and uraemia after pyelonephritis in childhood: 27 year follow up.

Children with focal renal scarring due to pyelonephritis are at high risk of serious long term consequences during adolescence and pregnancy and it is essential that they are given adequate attention and care during adolescents and pregnancy.

Epidemiology of symptomatic infections of the urinary tract in children.

Although the findings may partly have been caused by changes in policies of admission to hospital, they suggest a decreasing trend in symptomatic urinary tract infections in childhood, which may be associated with changes in the care of infants.

Reflux nephropathy in children submitted to unilateral nephrectomy: a clinicopathological study.

It is emphasized that congenital malformation of the kidney is a crucial factor in the development of reflux nephropathy in this younger age group, particularly in males, and speculation on the significance of the association between renal dysplasia and RN is discussed.
