Abstract:

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections especially among the population in reproductive age group. This study was designed to isolate, characterize and to determine the antimicrobial susceptibility of uropathogens causing UTI, within the age group of 25-40 yrs attending Govt. Theni Medical College Hospital. The study identified Escherichia coli as the most common cause of UTI with 28% proportion among the positive cultures and most isolates of them were found susceptible to colistin (92.3%), tigecycline (84.3%), meropenam (79.8%) and gentamicin (79.4%).


Keywords: Urinary tract infection, Uropathogens, Antibiotic susceptibility.
