C M E D I R E C T O R , A S S I S TA N T P R O F E S S O R D E PA R T M E N T O F FA M I LY M E D I C I N E UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN Learning Objectives Determine when to send a urinalysis/urine culture in febrile infants and children Apply evidence-based recommendations to the treatment of UTI in children Determine the appropriate imaging studies in infants/children with UTI

Implement strategies to prevent recurrent UTI Background Occurs in 5% of infants and young children with fever and no apparent source Highest risk in uncircumcised boys < 3 mo and girls <12 mo Untreated UTI can lead to renal scarring Overdiagnosis can lead to misuse of antibiotics and unnecessary imaging

Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012; White B. Am Fam Phys. 2011. History and Physical Signs and symptoms include fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, new onset of urinary incontinence, strong-smelling urine Ask about history of vesicoureteral reflux in parents and siblings White B. Am Fam Phys. 2011 Diagnostic Criteria Urinalysis

shows pyuria and/ or bacteriuria Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012. Urine culture grows 50,000 CFU/ml of bacteria True UTI

Ways to Obtain Urine Culture Suprapubic aspiration Invasive, requires expertise, painful May be necessary in boys with phimosis and girls with labial adhesions Catheterization Invasive High sensitivity (95%), specificity (99%) Bag applied to perineum False positive result 88-99% of the time!

Obtain urinalysis and culture by catheterization OR Obtain urinalysis by bag or catheterization a. b. If urinalysis tests + for nitrites or leukocyte esterase, then obtain culture via catheterization If urinalysis tests negative, then follow clinically without antibiotic Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012. Treatment Use oral or parenteral antibiotic Adjust the antibiotic based on sensitivities

from urine culture Treat for 7-14 days for febrile UTI, 3-7 days for afebrile UTI Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012. Cayley WE. Am Fam Phys. 2013. Treatment Regimens Antibiotic Dosing Amoxicillin/clavulanate (Augmentin) 20-40 mg/kg/day, divided q 8 hrs

Cefixime (Suprax) 8 mg/kg/day Cefpodoxime 10 mg/kg/day, divided q 12 hrs Cefproxil (Cefzil) 30 mg/kg/day, divided q 12 hrs Cephalexin (Keflex) 50-100 mg/kg/day, divided q 6 hrs

Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim) 6-12 mg/kg trimethoprim and 30-60 mg/kg sulfamethoxazole per day, divided q 12 hrs Roberts KB. Pediatrics. 2011. Imaging Modalities Renal & Bladder U/S Pros: noninvasive, no radiation

Cons: cannot reliably demonstrate inflammation, renal scarring; no info on renal function Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012. VCUG Pros: affects treatment decisions that theoretically reduce risk of

renal scarring Cons: radiation, expense, discomfort Imaging Recommendations Order renal and bladder U/S in febrile infants with confirmed UTI Order a VCUG if the U/S shows: Hydronephrosis Scarring

Other findings to suggest high-grade VUR or obstruction Perform a VCUG if a child develops a 2nd UTI Roberts KB. Am Fam Phys. 2012. Prevention of Recurrent UTIs Breastfeed Treat constipation Routine circumcision not recommended Use of daily prophylactic antibiotic is controversial White B. Am Fam Phys. 2011.

Antibiotic Prophylaxis Meta-analysis of six RCTs with a total of 1,091 children (aged 2-24 mo) compare prophylaxis vs. no prophylaxis No benefit in those with Grade I-IV reflux Roberts, KB. Revised AAP guideline on UTI in febrile infants and young children. Am Fam Phys. 2012;86(10):940-946.

Antibiotic Prophylaxis RIVUR trial randomized 607 children (92% female) with grade I-IV reflux to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole vs. placebo Reduction in recurrent UTI No difference in risk of renal scarring Increase in bacterial resistance Hoberman A, et al. Antimicrobial prophylaxis for

children with vesicoureteral reflux. NEJM. 2014;370(25):2367-2376. Conclusions Send urinalysis and urine culture to diagnose UTI Use 50,000 CFU/ml as threshold for positive urine culture Perform catheterization Order renal/bladder ultrasound after febrile UTI Test urine for infection with subsequent febrile illnesses

Choosing Wisely Do not perform VCUG routinely in first febrile UTI in children aged 2-24 months. The risks associated with radiation (plus the discomfort and expense of the procedure) outweigh the risk of delaying the detection of the few children with correctable genitourinary abnormalities until their second UTI.
