Spontaneous clearing of bacteriuria occurred in three infants during the neonatal and early infancy period. In all cases, the presence of bacteria was confirmed by bladder puncture, no signs of clinical infection were present, and no treatment was given. The same host defence mechanisms as exist in adults were probably responsible for this phenomenon.
