Abstract

Dysuria is defined as pain, burning or discomfort on urination. <br>It is commonly accompanied by frequency or urgency. <br>Pain at the start of urination suggests urethral pathology, while pain at the end of urination suggests bladder origin. <br>Haematuria is common with UTI and is unlikely to occur with other potential causes. <br>Pyuria is the most sensitive laboratory indicator for UTI. <br>A positive nitrite test is suggestive of UTI, but a negative test does not rule out the diagnosis. <br>Other conditions which present with dysuria are cystitis, acute and subclinical pyelonephritis, urethritis, vaginitis, genital herpes, interstitial cystitis, urethral diverticulum and burning vulvar syndrome.
