Answer

Genitourinary complications usually manifest as orchitis or epididymo-orchitis. [36] Renal involvement is rare, although glomerulonephritis and pyelonephritis have been reported. [37] Infection in pregnant patients is rare and is associated with first-trimester abortions. The frequency of this complication is not substantially different from its frequency when associated with other bacterial infections.
