Materials and Methods: The present study is a descriptive cross-sectional study which was performed on 324 patients with urinary tract infection. Demographic and clinical data were recorded using a checklist. Samples were divided into two groups: hyponatremia and non-hyponatremia. In each group, leukocytosis, CRP, ESR and duration of fever were evaluated. After data collection, data were analyzed using SPSS software version 80 and descriptive statistics. Findings: In this study 324 patients with febrile urinary tract infection were studied. 71.67 of them were female and 82.47 were male. Mean and standard deviation of age in the study population were 40.80 years and 38.14 years, respectively. 57.67 of people with urinary tract infection had hyponatremia. There was no significant relationship between age (P = 0/832) and sex (P = 08120) with hyponatremia. In this study, patients with hyponatremia with leukocytosis, , Increased ESR, and positive CRP , and between hyponatremia and CRP (P = 0.001), ESR (P <0.001), leukocytosis (P = 0.001) and duration of fever (P <08001) Significant correlation was observed. Conclusion: Our study showed that hyponatremia was significantly associated with urinary tract infection and could be used as an adjunctive inflammatory marker in renal fever infections.
