Abstract:

Clinical one hundred thirty two samples were collected during the time from 13/9/2015 to 12/11/2015 of urine samples from patients suffering from urinary tract infection (UTI), from different hospitals in Baghdad city. The results of cultural, microscopic, biochemical tests, which was confirmed by API 20E indicated that in urine samples Escherichia coli have the highest occurrence frequency followed by Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella species. Susceptibility test against twelve antimicrobial agents was done for all of the Proteus mirabilis pathogenic isolates (53 isolates). The results displayed that most of the isolates were resistant to Methicillin, methoprim and Rifampin followed by trimethoprim–sulfamethoxazole, chloramphenicol, and cefazoline, while the most effective antimicrobial agents against P. mirabilis were Imipenem, Amikacin, Azetronam, Azithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, whereas a moderate affect appeared against both gentamycin and tobramycin.


Keywords: Proteus mirabilis; urinary tract infection; antimicrobial resistant.
