Abstract

Antibiotic resistance worsens clinical outcomes and, in some cases, significantly impacts the clinical management of urinary tract infections in the outpatient setting. This article presents the prevalence and mechanism of relevant antimicrobial resistance patterns encountered among uropathogens, and discusses the efficacy of antibiotic regimens and novel therapies in treating commonly encountered multidrug-resistant organisms.
