Pyelo & Cystitis

The symptoms are the same for pyelonephritis & cystitis except for what? Pyelonephritis shows no increased urinary frequency.
True or False: all areas of the urinary tract are sterile in healthy humans. False: The urinary tract is only sterile above the urethra, which houses its own normal flora.
When is it necessary to perform a diagnostic study when a male gets a UTI? After the first infection or in a case of suspected pyelonephritis because as a general rule, men shouldn't get UTIs until after the age of 60.
Where do infections usually reside when a patient has cystitis? In the bladder &/or the urethra.
Why do women tend to get UTI's more frequently than males? It is due to a shorter urethra & it is much closer to the anus & the GI's normal flora.
