Staph aureus: This is complex. To begin, s. Aureus almost always produces UTI hematogenously, and so looking for the primary source is essential. To choose an antibiotic for this correctly you must have in vitro sensitivities, and then depending upon the extent of disease choose the route, frequency and dosage of the appropriate agent. ...Read more
It depends: It really depends on many factors. It is more common in children because of the anatomic "immaturity" of the eustachian tube...
