The findings reported in patients undergoing excretory urography for recurrent urinary tract infection.

Abstract

There was little difference between the proportion of lesions found by excretion urography in patients with recurrent urinary tract infections referred by general practitioners or hospital staff, or between Horton General Hospital which is a district general hospital, and the United Oxford Hospitals, which is a teaching group. Many patients with urinary tract infections may be saved an unnecessary visit to the hospital consultant if this is first investigated by the general practitioner.About one fifth of all patients had significant lesions shown by excretory urography which suggests that the investigation is worthwhile in patients with recurrent urinary tract infections.
