My 3 yo dd has bilateral kidney reflux. When she gets an infection, it comes on suddenly and a very high fever. Like, up to 103 within an hour of otherwise being fine. She has no other symptoms other than spike in fever. She gets a straight cath for the specimen as that is the best way to not have a contaminated specimen. She will also be very lethargic and sleep for about 2 days with minimal waking.
ETA: she usually gets a shot of Rocephin and then the appropriate oral antibiotics after the culture and sensitivity come back at 48 hours.
