    Compliance with antibiotic prophylaxis after urinary tract infection was assessed in 32 children, using a parent questionnaire, and a urine test for antibacterial substances. In 31 (97%) cases, parents reported giving the antibiotics every day but only 22 (69%) of urine tests were positive. Failure to understand the reasons for prophylaxis and non-compliance were significantly associated.
