Urinary tract infection

A urinary tract infection is defined as the presence of invasive bacteria in the urinary system, together with signs of inflammation, such as high temperature and local pain.

Urinary tract infections may be located in the lower urinary tract (bladder and urethra), or the upper urinary system, affecting one or both kidneys. A kidney infection is also known as pyelonephritis.
