Common treatment errors

• Not treating women with dysuria and frequency merely because there are < 10 5 cfu/ mL in an MSU

• Overtreating women with acute cystitis and normal urinary tracts; single-dose therapy is effective in 70-80% of cases, and overtreatment often leads to vaginal candidiasis or antibioticinduced diarrhoea

• Using single-dose therapy in patients with known anatomical abnormalities

• Failing to consider chronic prostatic infection in men with recurrent UTI and a normal IVU
