Yes, a UTI (urinary tract infection) is typically caused by bacterial infection. The most common bacteria responsible for UTIs is Escherichia coli (E. coli), which is usually found in the digestive system. In some cases, UTIs can also be caused by other bacteria such as Klebsiella or Proteus.

Histology report says fungal infection from sample taken from bladder. have been very sick. is this normal. waiting results from urine sample. what are symptoms of fungal infection of the bladder?

When I had my fungal bladder infection the symptoms were exactly the same as a normal bacterial UTI in fact the doctor in the ER treated it as a bacterial bladder infection it wasn't until I went to my primary doctor and had more testing done just 2 days later that it was found to be fungal. The only thing that was different was that there were large floating particles in my urine my doctor told me these were collanies of fungi the smell of my urine was different than when I had bacterial bladder infections. Mind you I have had several bacterial UTI's. I hope this helps you If you do have a fungal bladder infection and are female they need to check and see if you have the same infection in you vagina.
