In patients with suspected urinary tract infection (UTI), antibiotic treatment is usually started empirically, before urine culture results are available. Unfortunately, antibiotic resistance has become an increasingly pressing clinical issue in many countries. The objective of this study was to assess the changing susceptibility of urinary pathogens to commonly used antimicrobials in a six-year period to evaluate the options for empirical antibiotic therapy in children with community acquired UTI.
