Viral Infections of the Urinary System

What is a viral urinary system infection?

A Answers (1)

  • A viral urinary system infection is an infection of the urinary system that is caused by a virus not a bacterium. Urinary system infections can attack any part of the urinary system, which consists of the urethra where urine leaves the body; the bladder where urine is stored; the ureters that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder; and the kidneys that process the urine. Urinary system infections can be limited to one part of the urinary system or may spread to through the entire urinary system.
