UTI due to ESBL-producing E. coli are emerging, and also in a country with low antibiotic use. Because of increasing antibiotic resistance rates of E. coli to current standard therapy and because of the resistance patterns of ESBL-producing E. coli, guidelines for the management of UTIs must be revised. Fosfomycin or nitrofurantoin are recommended for the first-line empirical oral treatment of community-acquired uncomplicated UTIs.
