Abstract:

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the major causes of morbidity in cancer patients. The purpose of the present study is to analyse the cases of urinary tract infection and to study their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern. A prospective analysis of cancer patients in year 2016-2017 was carried out at Government cancer hospital to identify the common uropathogens and to know their susceptibility pattern. Out of 121 samples processed, 42 were culture positive. Overall E. coli 16 (38.09%) was the predominant pathogen followed by pseudomonas aeruginosa 08 (19.04%), Klebsiella pneumonia 05 (11.9%), Candida species 05 (11.9 %), Acinetobacter species 04 (9.52%), Staphylococcus aureus 02 (4.76%), Enterobacter species 01 (2.3%) and Enterococcus species 01 (2.3%). Susceptibility to polymyxin B and colistin was highest (100%) followed by the carbapenems (90%) and piperacillin + Tazobactam (73%). Resistance to fluroquinolones (96%), cephalosporins (80%) and aminoglycosides (50%) was noted.
