Hematogenous Pathway

The hematogenous route occurs through the seeding of the urinary tract with pathogens carried by the blood supply. These pathogens represent an infection at some other primary site in the body.

Experimental hematogenous seeding of the kidneys could not be created with the IV injection of large innocula of E. coli or P aeruginosa in a mouse model.19
