What is a urinary tract infection?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) occurs when bacteria grow excessively within any portion of the urinary system. The most common type of UTI involves the bladder and is known as acute cystitis. Infections within the kidney (the upper urinary tract) cause greater systemic symptoms and are called pyelonephritis.
