Long Term Treatment with the Combination SMZ/TMP in Children with Urinary Tract Infections
The results of a long-term treatment of 34 children with chronic urinary tract infections, with the combination SMZ/TMP were reported. Twenty-six were females and 8 males and they all had congenital urinary tract obstructions or anomalies. Eight out of them underwent over a year’s treatment; the other 26 between one and twelve months. The dosage schedule was 20 mg per Kg SMZ and 5 mg Kg TMP twice daily. 67.5% remained with sterile urine cultures; 17.7% developed re-infections and 14.8% recurrences. General tolerance was excellent and the authors point out the absence of deterioration or impairment in renal function tests.
