Özet

Introduction: Urinary tract infection is one of the most prevalent bacterial infections among children. Difficulty in specimen collection and interpretation of improperly collected specimens may cause misdiagnosis of the urinary tract infection. In this study, it was aimed to compare the contamination ratio of urine specimens obtained after chlorhexidine or soap wipes cleaning.
