Any abnormality that causes an obstruction to the flow of urine (kidney stones, abnormal structures...) can lead to a urinary infection.


It is a urine infection that is caused by the invasion of microorganisms in the urinary tract. It can occur in two different ways: through the lower end of the urinary tract, which is the most frequent case; or through the bloodstream, in which case the infection directly affects the kidneys. The most common urinary tract infections are those caused by bacteria, although they can also be caused by viruses, fungi or parasites.
