The development of bacteremia from a urinary focus is called urosepsis.
Urosepsis as a result of urinary tract infection (UTI) is commonly caused by Gram-negative bacteria.
Early identification and treatment of urosepsis in infants and children is very crucial.
Urosepsis can lead to systemic symptoms that may result in multiorgan failure.
Patients with urosepsis who have systemic symptoms are best managed in the intensive care setting.
Optimum management of urosepsis requires collaboration between several subspecialties.
