Complicated urinary tract infections (cuti) refer to those infections that occur in the presence of anatomic or functional abnormalities in the kidney. Urine from 120 complicated UTI patients was collected and subjected to gram staining, culture and sensitivity by routine methods and ESBL resistance detected by screening and phenotypic methods. Males contributed to maximum number of isolates with 67.5%. Maximum number of isolates was obtained in the 51-60 yrs age group. The gram negative bacilli constituted 90.83% of isolates and gram positive cocci constituted 9.17% of isolates. E. coli was the commonest isolate with 40.83% and Klebsiella spp with 33.33%. The other isolates were Pseudomonas spp, Acinetobacter spp, S. aureus, Citrobacter spp and Proteus vulgaris. In GNB isolates, Amikacin, Nitrofurantoin and Imipenem had higher sensitivity. The gram positive cocci isolated were Enterococci spp and S. aureus which were 7 and 4 isolates respectively. The ESBL production in E. coli was higher than Klebsiella spp. The high rate of resistance demands an effective drug control policy to be formulated by the knowledge obtained in this study for the treatment of these patients.

Keywords: Complicated UTI, Imipenem, ESBl, Drug resistance, E. coli.
