The urinary tract includes: upper urinary ducts, bladder, urinary ducts and renal pelvis. Generally, the infection originates in the urinary duct and then extends to the upper urinary tract until it reaches the kidneys. It is mainly women who suffer from it, due to the short urinary ducts that favor the penetration of pathogenic germs. Men are affected especially in old age, as an enlarged prostate could prevent urine from flowing out.

WHO IS THIS TEST FOR?
