Abstract
Among 223 cases who were admitted to the Department of Pediatrics, Hanyang University Hospital from January 1980 to December 1987 under the diagnosis of Urinary Tract Infection(UTI), 132 cases of E. coli UTI were compared with 91 cases of non-E. coli UTI by age, sex distribution, clinical manifestation, laboratory results and clinical course. The results obtained were as follows: 1. There were no significant differences of sex incidence in E. coli UTI, but in non-E. coli UTI sex incidence showed male predominance and there were no significant differences of each other group in the age incidence. 2. In E. coli UTI, abdominal pain, irritability, hematuria and pyuria were more often observed than non-E. coli UTI significantly. 3. Of the frequency of abnormal radiologic finding and the recurrence rate of UTI were no significant difference between E. coli UTI and non-E. coli UTI.
