Most urinary tract infections in diabetic patients are relatively asymptomatic. The presence of diabetes predisposes to much more severe infections, especially in patients with poor diabetic control, acute ketoacidosis, or diabetic complications such as nephropathy, vasculopathy and neuropathy. This asymptomatic infection can lead to severe kidney damage and cause renal failure.
Among the most striking effects of diabetes with regard to UTI appears to be the associated risk of infections progressing to complications or being due to unusual infecting organisms like non E coli bacteria,group B streptococci,candida albicans etc. Emphysematous cystitis
, relatively rare infections, occur almost exclusively in diabetic patients . Other clinical manifestations that are unique or strongly associated with diabetes include abscess formation and renal papillary necrosis
