What Is a Pseudomonas Bladder Infection?

A pseudomonas bladder infection is the inflammation of the muscular sac in the pelvis that stores urine, caused by the common bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, according to WebMD. People in good health can harbor the bacteria without risk of infection, while those who are weaker or sick are susceptible to contracting a serious or deadly infection. In general, bladder infections, also known as cystitis, occur more frequently in women than in men.
