To date, there has not been an establishment of guidelines for urinary tract infections, due to limited domestic data in Korea, unlike other North American and European countries. The clinical characteristics, etiology, and antimicrobial susceptibility of urinary tract infections vary from country to country. Moreover, despite the same disease, antibiotic necessary to treat it may vary from country to country. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a guideline that is relevant to a specific country. However, in Korea, domestic data have been limited, and thus, guidelines considering the epidemiological characteristics pertaining specifically to Korea do not exist. Herein, describe a guideline that was developed by the committee of The Korean Association of Urogenital Tract Infection and Inflammation, which covers only the uncomplicated urinary tract infections, as covering all parts in the first production is difficult.
