In general, all male UTIs are considered complicated. Consider the potential for renal involvement when planning treatment strategies.

Inpatient management is recommended for patients with the following features:

  • Appear toxic

  • Have obstructive uropathy or stones

  • Unable to tolerate oral hydration

  • Have significant comorbid conditions

  • Unable to care for self at home
