Abstract

Introduction: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections in the geriatric population. The management of geriatric urinary tract infections is difficult due to the various factors. This study evaluated the clinical and laboratory characteristics of 101 patients who were monitored for upper UTI (acute pyelonephritis) in a tertiary care hospital.
