Urinary Levels of Carindacillin in the Pediatric Age
From an etiological viewpoint, urinary tract infections — which are often, especially in the pediatric age, associated with or favored by morbid situations that constitute either an obstacle to the urinary flow or lesion of the kidney or of the same urinary tract — are prevalently due to Gram-negative bacteria, in particular to germs of the coliform group (E. coli in particular but also Aerobacter aerogenes and Klebsiella pneumoniae), of the Proteus group, particularly Proteus vulgaris and Proteus morganii, and to Pseudomonas aeruginosa. According to some authors (Hradec et al 1972), about two thirds of the urinary infections are due to Gram-negative germs, with a large prevalence of E. con, Proteus and Pseudomonas. According to Sanna (1975), who reported on more than 8,000 strains isolated from urinary infections, E. coli is in question in 17% of the cases, Proteus in 20%, and Pseudomonas pyocyanea in 13.5%.
