Proteus infections occur worldwide, and are generally considered pathogenic for young individuals and opportunistic pathogens for the elderly. The elderly, particularly those who are on long-term catheterization or under frequent antibiotic therapy, prepubescent males and females, and individuals with structural abnormalities of the urinary tract are more susceptible to infection.
