How Common Are Urinary Tract Infections in Children
How Common Are Urinary Tract Infections in Children?
UTIs are more common in boys who are not circumcised than in circumcised boys. During the first year of life, boys are at higher risk for UTIs than girls. After the first year, UTIs become more common in girls than in boys. This trend continues throughout childhood and most of adulthood.
Infants and young children often get another UTI in the months after their first one. Recurrent infections usually happen within the same year as the first UTI.
