Abstract

Urinary tract infection is a significant problem in diabetes mellitus. The pathogenesis and management of bacteriuria and uncomplicated urinary tract infections are reviewed in this article. Upper tract infection is more common in diabetic patients; special considerations regarding pyelonephritis in the diabetic patient are covered. Complicated upper tract infections, such as intrarenal abscess, urinary tract emphysema, perinephric abscess, papillary necrosis, and metastatic infection from the urinary tract are frequently seen in diabetics. The pathogenesis and management of these entities in the setting of diabetes mellitus are also reviewed in this article.
