Cystitis is uncommon in young men; E. coli is the most frequent pathogen. Risk factors include urologic abnormality, anal intercourse, and lack of circumcision. Pyuria may also be an indication of sexually transmitted infections. A pretreatment urinalysis and culture should be sent. Other urologic studies are appropriate if there are no underlying risk factors, when treatment fails, in recurrent infections, or when pyelonephritis occurs.
