Abstract

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections. It is a serious health problem affecting millions of people each year. The role of demographic variables in UTI spread is poorly understood. Understanding the effect of the different factors on community-acquired urinary tract infections can aid the proper management of this disease. In this issue, Majeed et al. demonstrates the incidence of UTI in relation to various demographic features and found that lack of awareness about UTI among general population has a major role in its higher prevalence. Therefore, knowledge of the UTI incidence, demographic variables, pathogens involved and their antibiotic susceptibility is important for better treatment of urinary tract infection.
