The present study aims to study gender and age –wise distribution of UTIs, bacteriological profile of uropathogens, sensitivity pattern of the isolates and burden of multidrug resistant organisms including MRSA. Urine samples from suspected UTI cases were collected from June to November 2015. After direct microscopy the samples were cultured on CLED agar .Plates with significant growth were processed, and antibiotic susceptibility tested by Kirby Bauer disc diffuson method according to CLSI 2014 guidelines. Of the 1234 samples 329 showed significant growth. UTI was most common in females in the age-group 21-40 years. The most common isolate was E.coli (44.68%), followed by Klebsiella (24.62%), CoNS (6.38%) and Pseudomonas (5.78%). Almost 100% gram negative organisms were sensitive to Nitrofurantoin and Imepenem and 100% gram positive cocci were sensitive to Vancomycin. 18.37% of the gram positive cocci were MRSA. Multidrug resistance was seen in 17.02% of  uropathogens. The knowledge of antimicrobial pattern of routinely isolated uropathogens in any  area  provides guidance to clinicians in starting empirical treatment of UTI before laboratory reports are available.

Keywords: Uropathogens, antimicrobials, Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion test, urinary tract infections.
