Abstract:

Authors’ conclusions: antibiotic prophylaxis is not indicated for the prevention of renal scarring after a first or second symptomatic or febrile urinary tract infection in otherwise healthy children.

Reviewers’ commentary: incidence of renal scarring after febrile urinary tract infection in healthy children is low, around 6%. There are not differences between prophylaxis and control groups, so prophylactic antibiotic therapy is not justified.

Keywords: Antibiotic prophylaxis. Pyelonephritis. Child. Urinary tract infections.
