Urinary tract infections are sometimes considered of little medical interest, easy to diagnose and treat. However, they represent huge expenses for public health, due to their frequency, laboratory studies and images that are also requested by the antibiotics used in general and in particular for the germs that are resistant to them.

In this review article we present information regarding statistical data on the frequency of the main urinary tract infections in both sexes, their cost, mortality rates, recurrence rates and some perspectives from the point of view of general Public Health and that of our country in particular.
