Abstract

Infections caused by species are commonly associated with contact with dogs and cats, typically involving bites and scratches, but casual contact with household pets can also be a risk factor. Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by species is rare and a significant majority of cases have some known risk factor associated with an underlying chronic illness or structural and/or functional urological abnormality.

Here, we present a case of a UTI due to in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix who also had a household cat.

Providers and laboratorians should be aware of risk factors associated with UTIs caused by species.
