Answer

GU infections

  • Presentations of pseudomonal UTIs are generally indistinguishable from other bacterial UTIs.

  • One rare exception is development of ulcerative lesions of the bladder mucosa, ureters, and renal pelvis, resulting in sloughing of vesical membrane in the urine.

  • Another rare sequela is the development of multiple renal infarcts.
