It can be: Cefuroxime is a 2nd generation cephalosporin, and can be used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. If a urine culture was obtained showing 'sensitivity' to cefuroxime, then it is a good choice. It is frequently used for respiratory infections, and can be used for uti's as well, but i would like to see a culture result to be sure it is adequate.
