Antibiotic therapy of acute uncomplicated cystitis

S.A. Kramarov, L.V. Zakordonets


Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common bacterial infections in humans. Annually in the world, about 150 million cases of UTI are registered. Several risk factors are associated with UTIs, including diabetes, immunodeficiency diseases, structural abnormalities of the kidneys and urinary tract, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, pregnancy, infancy, or elderly age. The main direction in the treatment of acute uncomplicated UTI is antibiotic therapy. The article presents data of current international recommendations on the treatment of UTI.
