Asymptomatic bacteriuria

This is defined as the presence of a significant growth of bacteria in the urine, which has not produced symptoms requiring consultation. 1 On close questioning many patients admit to mild urinary symptoms.

• This is common only in sexually active women, the elderly and those with urinary tract abnormalities. UTI can exist without any symptoms. 1

• These patients are more likely to have a past history of symptomatic UTI or to develop symptoms in the future than subjects with sterile urine. 1

• During pregnancy, asymptomatic bacteriuria leads to acute clinical UTI in up to 30% of women.
