About the book
Microbial infections have a large impact on our health; among these infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs) have a great share. The frequency of UTIs varies with gender, age, health state, and socioeconomic background. Furthermore, the causative agents of UTIs expand to include bacterial, fungal, protozoal, and viral infectious agents. Authored by clinicians and scientists particularly nominated for their expertise in the field, the Urinary tract infections book reviews the diverse causative agents of UTIs. This book intends to cover the epidemiology, transmission, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of bacterial, fungal, protozoal, and viral UTIs. Special consideration is drawn to the UTIs in specific groups of patients like pregnant women, children, hospitalized, immunocompromised, and AIDS patients. This book aims to provide consensus tips on the treatment and etiology of UTIs that aid clinicians and healthcare providers in cost-effective curing UTI patients. This book will intend to present well-designed clinical studies as well as basic research that will be appreciated by clinicians and researchers in urology and microbiology.
