A dip-slide test for bacteriuria in protein-calorie malnutrition

N. Buchanan

Abstract


A simple dip-slide test was used to determine the incidence of bacteriuria in children suffering from protein-calorie malnutrition. Bacteriuria was found to be equally common in patients suffering from kwashiorkor and atrophic malnutrition and in a control group with normal nutritional status. The test is inexpensive and has a definite place in clinical practice.
