In the practice guideline entitled, “Practice Parameter: The Diagnosis, Treatment, and Evaluation of the Initial Urinary Tract Infection in Febrile Infants and Young Children” (Pediatrics. 1999;103:843–852), recommendation number 11 on imaging should read:
“Infants and young children, 2 months to 2 years, with UTI, who do not demonstrate the expected clinical response within 2 days of antimicrobial therapy, should undergo ultrasonography promptly. Voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) or radionuclide cystography (RNC) is strongly encouraged to s̅h̅o̅u̅l̅d̅ be performed at the earliest convenient time. Infants and young children who have the expected response to antimicrobials should have a sonograma̅n̅d̅ ̅V̅C̅U̅G̅ ̅o̅r̅ ̅R̅N̅C̅ performed at the earliest convenient time; a VCUG or RNC is strongly encouraged (Strength of evidence: fair).”
