Abstract

Febrile urinary tract infection is one of the commonest infections in the childhood. Unrecognized and untreated childhood UTI can lead to scarring of the growing kidneys with subsequent hypertension and renal failure. This study has been done at a tertiary care medical centre to study the clinico - biological and imaging correlation in children with first episode of febrile UTI. Renal function tests, ultrasonogram, DMSA and MCU were done according to ISPN and institutional protocol. Imaging was done on follow up as per need. Majority of the children were found to be in 1 to 5 years age (68%) group and overall there was female preponderance (n=80; 53%). Dysuria was the commonest presentation in febrile UTI and E. coli, the commonest organism isolated. USG was found abnormal in 57.6% of children and DMSA done in acute phase picked up pyelonephritis in 81.5%. MCU revealed VUR in 39% of the study population. The study underlines the importance and efficacy of various investigations apart from the clinical presentation in diagnosing UTI and defining the associated risk factors.
