This NICE guideline is about the care and treatment in the NHS in England and Wales of babies, children and young people who are younger than 16 years with a urinary tract infection (UTI).
The advice in the NICE guideline covers the investigations and treatment that should be given to children younger than 16 years who have a UTI, and the information that should be offered to their families.
It does not look at:
- children who have already been diagnosed with any other kidney, bladder or urinary problems
- children whose immune system is not working properly
- children in intensive care units
- long-term management of repeated UTIs in sexually active girls.
