Re: Diagnosis and management of recurrent urinary tract infections in non-pregnant women

Though the article is limited to non-pregnant women, still can the authors throw some light on the fact that asymptomatic bacteriuria is innocuous in non-pregnant women whereas it is not the case in pregnant women (it can damage kidneys in these women)?
