CONTROVERSY IN THE MANAGEMENT OF

FEBRILE URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN

INFANT AND TODDLERS

Pinhas Geva

Michigan State University, USA

T

he American Academy of Pediatrics had published its most current guide-

lines for the diagnosis and treatment of initial UTI in infants and children

2 to 24 months of age in August of 2011. The guidelines left significant ambi-

guities related to the role of imaging, antibiotic treatment and follow up. Sig-

nificant controversy arose from deviation from prior practice of offering anti-

bacterial prophylaxis for children diagnosed with vesicoureteral reflux. Sub-

sequently, a study comparing prophylaxis to placebo was published in may of

2014 (Antimicrobial Prophylaxis for Children with Vesicoureteral Reflux The

RIVUR Trial Investigators) attempted to resolve the controversy, however, it

has not been endorsed by all professional societies, leaving the practicing

Pediatrician to tailor treatment without firm, well-accepted guidelines.

Pinhas Geva had completed his medical education at

the Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv, Israel. After

completing residency, completed Pediatric Nephrology

Fellowship at University of California, Los Angeles and

assumed junior faculty position at Albert Einstein College

of Medicine in July of 1987. He joined the faculty at Mich-

igan State University in July of 1997 and remained active

in patient care and residents, student’s education.
