What is the Cause of Foul Smelling Urine?

Patient: What does it mean when you have a ‘septic’ smell to your urine

 

 

Doctor: It most probably means that you are having a urinary tract infect, though certain diseases like phenylketonuria also can cause foul urine smell. You need to get a urine test to see whether there is infection and treat accordingly.
