Febrile urinary tract infection is the most common serious bacterial infection in childhood, but the most appropriate evaluation of children with this condition is still unclear, overall regarding the best long-term management of children after a first UTI.

Nevertheless, the development of a universally accepted diagnostic protocol remains elusive.
