Introduction: World population is ageing. Accordingly, the prevalence of health problems and diseases are also increasing. Aging is associated with a growing demand for acute and primary healthcare. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common infectious diseases associated causes of hospitalization. When considering the fact that complicating factors are encountered more often in elderly patients, it is very important to find out these factors and start the appropriate treatment for the management of these patients in order to prevent untoward consequences. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the patients diagnosed with UTI in two different age groups and analyze the differences in advanced ages.
