dc.description.abstract INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infections are considered among the most common infectious disorders in humans. Various infections may have a role in inducing HAE attacks. Our study intended to evaluate bacteriuria in the urinalysis of C1-INH-HAE patients. METHODS: Urine specimens contributed by 139 C1-INH-HAE patients at the annual control visits were studied retrospectively for microorganisms. We analyzed the presence of bacteriuria in relation to the clinical symptoms. RESULTS: Taking into account 3 randomly selected urine specimens, we found that the cumulative number of edematous attacks was higher in patients with than in those without bacteriuria (p=0.019, p=0.022, p=0.014). Considering the same patients, attack number was significantly higher (14.51 vs. 8.63) in patients with than in those without bacteriuria (p<0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with bacteriuria, we found a higher incidence of edema formation during the year before evaluation, which may suggest the triggering role of bacteriuria in the occurrence of edematous episodes.
