The cystitis is an infection of the inferior urinary routes.

We will discard the infections of tracto urinary superior to occupy to us only of those of tracto urinary inferior (vejiga, uretra)

This type of infections is very frequent.

Until the 60 years it is an essentially feminine disease. From this age, also it affects the man.

Clinical signs.

Next, we will describe the picture of the acute cystitis, without complication with any other affection.

He is more frequent in young women (it affects to 4% of the women of ages between 20 and 30 years) Nevertheless, also can suffer it the greater women, being more frequent conforms are aged, until reaching 20% to the 70 years and 30% to the 80.

The main signs are:

• Ardor during the micción, that can go from the simple annoyance to the unbearable pain.

• Poliaquiuria, that is to say, excessive desire to tinkle. It is the announcing sign of the cystitis. The micciones are of little volume.

• vesical Pain, generally moderate and that persists during the micciones.

• Sometimes, is observed hematuria (presence of blood in tinkles it)

• the fever absence is a good symptom.


In 90 or 95% of the cases, the cystitis is originated by Escherichia coli, followed by Proteus mirabilis. Both are enterobacterias. Also we have to mention Klebsiella and Enterobacter.

One is germs that normally live in the intestine. The infection anatomically takes place through the urinary meato little prote'ge' in the woman.

The factors that favor it well are known:

• Upheavals of the intestinal transit: constipation (specially frequent) or diarrea.


• Insufficient ingestion of liquids.

• postmenstrual Periods pre and.

sexual Relations.


It tinkles it has the advantage of being easily analyzable. Its aspect must be observed: cloudy, sure hematúrico, etc.

The noncomplicated infections of tracto urinary inferior are detected by means of ECBU (Examen Cito Bacteriolo'gico Urinario)

The ECBU is not necessary for an isolated cystitis. However, yes it is it in the recidivantes forms.

At the time of gathering it tinkles it, is not advisable the technique of the vesical drilling. A sample of the first micción must be obtained in the morning, after a washing of the genital zone and after rejecting the first portion of it tinkles it.

In order to verify the presence of an infection, a count of bacteria will take place. In order to speak of cystitis the presence of 100, 000 is necessary (= 105) 10 U. F. C. ml and one leucocituria clearly superior to leucocitos / mm3.

In case of recidivas, the investigation of the germ must go accompanied of antibiograma.

The case of a typical picture of cystitis (ardor + poliaquiuria) not accompanied by bacteriuria can occur. In this case, one is cistalgias with you tinkle clear or "false cystitis".

Sometimes, the upheavals appear with the first sexual relations.

The "affective aggressions" also seem to influence in the appearance of this clinical picture.

The complicated forms always need a treatment with antibiotics oriented by antibiograma urinary.
