|Recurrent urinary tract infections is a significant problem in all patients with neurogenic bladder leading to high morbidity, poor quality of life and a limited life expectancy. For the diagnosis of UTI, a urine specimen taken by bladder puncture or catheterization is required. In patients with neurogenic bladders, clinical symptoms and leukocyturia must be present together with bacteriuria in order to qualify as UTI.
The spectrum of pathogens differs significantly from that in patients with normal bladder function. Culture and antimicrobial susceptibility testing must, therefore, be performed prior to the initiation of antibiotic therapy.
This is also important in the prevention of the emergence of antimicrobial resistance. The main way to prevent recurrent UTI in the neurogenic bladder is by restoring the normal low-pressure reservoir function of the bladder and is the aim of neuro-urological management.
The initial results of case studies indicate that autovaccination may be clinically useful. This technique, which has been utilized in Eastern Europe for about 20 years, uses inactivated whole-cell vaccines manufactured from disease-causing microorganisms for modulation of the immune system of the individual patient
According to evidence-based guidelines, merely symptomatic UTI should be treated with antibiotics. Treatment should be based on the results of microbiologic testing if possible, and taking a urine specimen is mandatory. For many details, however, like duration of treatment, substances to use, etc., sound medical evidence does not exist.
