Abstract:

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common bacterial infections. Enteric bacteria predominantly Escherichia coli) remain the most frequent cause of UTIs, although the distribution of pathogens that cause UTIs is changing. The study was based on primary survey to five different slums (Ravindrapuri extension, Nagwan, Bajardeehan, Batuapura and Ghasiyari Tola) of Varanasi city. This study is an attempt to determine the UTI status in slums of Varanasi city. During Questionnaire session we found that only 6% women were aware of UTI. 398 samples from slums were cultured on CLED, HI chrome, MSA, and preceded for biochemical identification followed by antimicrobial susceptibility tests using first line drug. 183 episodes of UTI were observed out of 398.We found 48%, 45%, 49%, 42%, 35.4% women suffered from UTI in Ravindrapuri Extension, Nagwan, Bajardeehan, Batuapura and Ghasiyari Tola slums respectively. Highest number of gram negative E.coli and gram positive S. aureus found in all slums. More important is the increase in resistance to some antimicrobial agents, mainly the resistance to ampicillin, cefozolin, gentamicin, ofloxacin seen in E. coli.
