Abstract

Intravenous urography was evaluated in 201 young women with recurrent urinary tract infections. In 118 of 121 patients with uncomplicated recurrent infections the intravenous urogram (IVU) was normal. Insignificant abnormalities were found in only three cases. It is concluded that, in order to avoid unnecessary investigation, an additional risk indication should be present to warrant an IVU. The additional risk indications have been identified.
