Abstract:

Antimicrobial resistance to urinary tract pathogens has been on steady rise worldwide. Community-acquired urinary tract infections (CA-UTI) are treated empirically based on their antimicrobial resistance patterns in a population of specific geographical location. Given the increased resistance of community bacteria to antimicrobials, local knowledge of susceptibility rates of uropathogens is essential for therapeutic decision making regarding patients with urinary tract infections.
