Accuracy of diagnostic tests to detect asymptomatic bacteriuria
A "positive" culture without inflammation evident in the urine is likely due to contamination, very early infection (rare), or asymptomatic bacteriuria
(positive urine cultures in febrile children can still represent asymptomatic bacteriuria
, because the fever may be due to a source other than the urinary tract).
following endourologic procedures generally has no clinical significance and may spontaneously disappear.
