A urinary infection is an infection of the efferent urinary tract which is mostly caused by bacteria (esp. E. coli bacteria).
Symptoms for infections of the efferent urinary tract: burning in urinating, strong urge to urinate, turbid colour and/or strong odor. If the bladder is also affected, this is called cystitis, which is a mild but unpleasant bladder infection. Infections of the upper urinary tract may lead to similar symptoms and additionally lower back pain, fever and chills.
The detection of protein, white blood cells (leucocytes) and nitrite in the urine provides information of the presence of an infection.
