UTI in young infants generally presents with fever. Among the youngest infants, boys and girls are equally affected. The incidence of UTI in uncircumcised boys is comparable with that in girls, whereas the rate in circumcised boys is much lower. Based on gender and race, white girls have the highest incidence of UTI. A full understanding of the epidemiology of UTI is complicated by the presence of asymptomatic bacteriuria and by incomplete evidence regarding the significance of scarring and the risk of sequelae.
