This special topic issue on infections in urology features works from scientists, infectious disease specialists, and urologists. As seen in this work, there is still a noticeable heterogeneity in the global burden of the disease . Indeed, while deficiencies in health systems and documentation restrict our epidemiological knowledge, the disease’s epidemiology is changing with globalization and increasing migration events. Infections such as tuberculosis, brucellosis, schistosomiasis, filariasis, and hydatidosis as well as infectious diseases associated with multidrug resistance (MDR), extensively drug-resistance (XDR), and pan drugresistance (PDR) generally follow geographic distribution patterns with the help of human travel and trade. These diseases pose a new challenge for doctors who need to diagnose conditions that have not been seen before. They also make it challenging to address new drug-resistant organisms, which reveal that these diseases, which are thought to have been controlled, should be revisited.
