Objective: Urinary tract infection (UTI) often causes different clinical presentations ranging from asymptomatic bacteriuria which do not require treatment, to urosepsis requiring hospitalization in the intensive care unit. UTIs may lead to treatment failure, recurrence of infections or increased morbidity and mortality in the presence of complicating risk factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk factors for the development of recurrent UTI (RUTI) in adults.
