Infectious Diseases Society of America guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria in adults

Author(s): Nicolle LE, Bradley S, Colgan R, Rice JC, Schaeffer A, Hooton TM

Abstract

The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria in adult populations >18 years of age. The recommendations were developed on the basis of a review of published evidence, with the strength of the recommendation and quality of the evidence graded using previously described Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) criteria (table 1) [1]. Recommendations are relevant only for the treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria and do not address prophylaxis for prevention of symptomatic or asymptomatic urinary infection. This guideline is not meant to replace clinical judgment.
