I am not a doctor but I personally do not think that the azathioprine is causing the problem, especially since he is only been on it for 10 days. I think the abscess is probably causing the UTI, since UTIs are not that common with boys. Is he taking any other medicines for Crohns besides aza? It generally takes a good three months for the azathioprine to be effective and he may need to be on another medicine. I hope that he is receiving treatment for the abscess; abscesses are painful.

Ask whether there any chance he has renel reflux, this is a condition where urine can backflow which I believe is most common cause of uti infections in children.
