Uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI)

An uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bladder infection (cystitis) or kidney infection (pyelonephritis) that is not caused by a structural problem, obstruction within the urinary tract (such as a kidney stone or an enlarged prostate), or other medical condition that affects kidney and bladder function, such as diabetes. Uncomplicated UTIs primarily affect young and middle-aged women before menopause.
