Abstract

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most common type of urologic problem and contribute to high financial burden worldwide. It’s important to treat them as soon as possible to avoid further infection and eliminate any chance for complications. Administration of appropriate antibiotic therapy is the key to achieving good therapeutic outcomes. The global emergence of multi-drug resistant uropathogens in the last decade underlines the need for alternative non-antibiotic treatment modalities against UTIs. Our review article illustrates the current trends and future perspectives for the management of urinary tract infections.
