ABSTRACT

 

The main aim of this study was to determine the sensitivity and resistance pattern of Urinary tract pathogens. Knowledge of sensitivity and resistance pattern of uropathogens in geographical locations is an important factor for choosing suitable antibacterial treatment. Patient information was obtained from medical record files. A total of 146 samples were analyzed. The organisms were isolated as the causative factors. E.coli (57.46%) Klebsiella (23.13%) and Staphylococcus (20.89%). Analysis of the samples showed that UTI was more common in females of younger age group as compared to males. The most common organism to cause UTI was found to be E.coli followed by Klebsiella. E.coli was found to be sensitive to Furazolidone (52%) and Nitrofurantoin (52%). Similarly Klebsiella to Furazolidone and Nitrofurantoin and Staphylococcus to Nitrofurantoin and Amikacin.
