Abstract:

Urinary tract infections are amongst the most common infections encountered in clinical practice. Despite the wide spread availability of antibiotics, UTI remains the most common bacterial infection in the human population. UTI is predominantly a disease of females and is frequently acquired through the community. One of the common causes of uncomplicated community acquired UTIs is Escherichia coli. However the bacteria causing UTI may vary according to the different geographical areas. Hence we have undertaking this study to assess the prevalence of bacteria that causes community acquired UTIs and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern. 500 Mid-stream urine samples were processed and 108 bacterial isolates were isolated and processed for their antibiotic sensitivity profile against 12 different antibiotics. Escherichia coli is the most common isolate of 108 bacterial isolates and most commonly found in female than male in this study. Among all antibiotics, Norfloxacin is least sensitive (16.67 %). Antibiotics with good sensitivity are Imipenem (100%) and Meropenem (100%). Community acquired Urinary Tract Infections are most commonly seen in Females than in Males in our study and most commonly caused by Escherichia coli. Drug resistance is not much seen in our study.
