Advances & More News / Broadcasting from China: Febrile Urinary Tract Infections Common With Neurogenic Bladder

Recurrent febrile urinary tract infections (FUTIs) are common in children with neurogenic bladder, and the risk for rapid progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD) increases in a dose-response manner, according to a study recently published in the European Journal of Pediatric Surgery. Guanglun Zhou, from Shenzhen Children's Hospital in China, and colleagues evaluated whether renal function, assessed as the estimated glomerular filtration rate, is associated with the number of FUTIs in children diagnosed with neurogenic bladder. The analysis included 463 children (mean age, 23 months). Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
