Last Updated : 1/2/2012

The clinical manifestations of UTI are non-specific and general. At younger age i.e. in new-borns and infants- fever, failure to thrive, vomiting or diarrhoea, convulsions, jaundice predominate, hence UTI can be missed at the early stage, when it is important to diagnose.

In older children above the age of 4-5 years, UTI manifests with fever, pain in abdomen especially loin pain, vomiting with urinary symptoms such as frequency, urgency, dysuria, painful micturition and foul smelling urine. The fever can be associated with chills and recurs frequently. When the UTI is recurrent there is failure to thrive, anaemia, listlessness and general malaise.
