Chapter 6 – The Bladder and the Pelvic Floor

Urinary tract infections in men

Urinary tract infections in men are uncommon and often associated with an underlying urinary tract abnormality. Therefore all males with a suspected urinary tract infection should be examined and investigated.

Risk factors include bladder outlet obstruction, e.g. benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or urethral stricture, urinary tract calculi, indwelling urinary catheter, neurogenic bladder, diabetes, immunosuppression, or very occasionally, bladder tumour. Differential diagnoses include chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
