Abstract

In this secondary analysis of the Randomized Intervention for Children with Vesicoureteral Reflux cohort, we found that daily prophylaxis with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole was not associated with an increased or decreased risk of skin and soft tissue infections, pharyngitis or sinopulmonary infections in otherwise healthy children 2-71 months of age.
