Abstract

A specific representative of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) called cystitis cystica (CC) was assessed by ultrasound. The aim of the study was to delineate, by means of ultrasound measurement (US) of bladder wall thickness (BWT), the children with mere repeated UTI from those prone to frequent UTI due to CC. Two groups were compared, the control group of 30 with recurrent UTI without US CC BWT changes, and the group of 30 children with characteristic CC bladder wall thickening in whom cystoscopy was performed for verification the diagnosis of CC. BWT of > 3 mm (> 2.8 mm and > 3.3 mm) was found as cut-of value for distinction of CC versus simple recurrent UTI. US BWT measurement is useful in diagnosing CC and therefore valuable in decision about need of UTI prophylaxis.

ULTRAZVUČNO RAZLIKOVANJE JEDNOSTAVNIH INFEKCIJA MOKRAĆNOG MJEHURA I CISTIČNOG CISTITISA KAO SPECIFIČNOG UPALNOG ODGOVORA SLUZNICE MOKRAĆNOG MJEHURA ----- Ultrazvučnom metodom procjenjena je mogućnost postavljanja dijagnoze cističnog cystitisa, specifičnog uzročnika ponavljanih infekcija urinarnog trakta. Svrha studije je preko ultrazvučnog mjerenja debljine stijenke sluznice mokraćnog mjehura razlučiti djecu s jednostavnim ponavljanim infekcijama od djece s opetovanim uroinfekcijama uzrokovanim cističnim cistitisom. Uspoređivane su dvije skupine djece, kontrolna skupina od 30 djece s ponavljanim uroinfekcijama bez promjene debljine sluznice mokraćnog mjehura i grupa od 30 djece s zadebljanjem mukoze mokraćnog mjehura u koje je cistoskopskim pregledom dokazan cistični cystitis. Debljina sluznice mokraćnog mjehura >3 mm (>2.8 mm do >3.3 mm) je nađena karakterističnom za razlikovanje cističnog cistitisa od jednostavnih opetovanih uroinfekcija. Ultrazvučnim mjerenjem debljine mukoze moguće je postaviti dijagnozu cističnog cistitisa i prema tome procijeniti potrebu za profilaksom uroinfekcija.
