Discussion of underlying conditions of Urinary tract infections:

Urinary Tract Infections in Adults: NIDDK (Excerpt)

Curing infections that stem from a urinary obstruction or nervous system disorder depends on finding and correcting the underlying problem, sometimes with surgery. If the root cause goes untreated, this group of patients is at risk of kidney damage. Also, such infections tend to arise from a wider range of bacteria, and sometimes from more than one type of bacteria at a time. (Source: excerpt from Urinary Tract Infections in Adults: NIDDK)

Urinary Tract Infections in Adults: NIDDK (Excerpt)

UTIs in men usually stem from an obstruction--for example, a urinary stone or enlarged prostate--or from a medical procedure involving a catheter. The first step is to identify the infecting organism and the drugs to which it is sensitive. Usually, doctors recommend lengthier therapy in men than in women, in part to prevent infections of the prostate gland. (Source: excerpt from Urinary Tract Infections in Adults: NIDDK)
