Abstract:

The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of urinary tract infection among patients attending our hospital viz., Shadan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre. Urinary tract infection is very common, more than 10 million cases per year in India. The study was conducted among the pregnant women attending the Shadan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre Hyderabad, from the period January 2016 to December 2016. A total of 930 urine samples were examined, 276 were found to contain significant bacteriuria, urine microscopy revealed >10 pus cells/ high power field. The incidence of UTI in pregnant women was found in 276 samples (30%). In this study the most common bacteria causing urinary tract infection is Escherichia coli. This study shows the need to raise awareness of UTI and to increase the services for preventing UTI during pregnancy by maintaining proper hygienic conditions.
