Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a global problem which has increased the morbidity and mortality in both men and women. Strategies which are proposed in the management of UTIs include the use of empirical antibiotics with a broader spectrum of coverage. Urine specimen culture is of significant importance to evaluate the organism responsible in the pathogenesis. Garenoxacin, a newer fluoroquinolone with unique structural advantage appears to a suitable drug in the treatment of UTIs.
