Urinary tract infection (UTI) is increasingly rising due to the development of drug resistance of causative pathogens against commonly prescribed antibiotics. Escherichia coli is the leading pathogen causing urinary tract infections. In the present study we attempted to examine the prevalence of uropathogens and antibiogram profiles of  E. coli isolates. A total of 89 urine samples were processed for culture sensitivity testing. Isolation of the organisms was done by inoculation of sample on Nutrient and MacConkeyagar. Out of 89 samples were processed, 70 organisms were isolated from urine which includes Escherichia coli (45), Klebsiella pneumoniae (13), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (08), and Entrococcus spp. (04). Antibiotic sensitivity was carried out using Muller Hinton agar medium by disc diffusion Method. E.coli is most common organism (64.3 %). High resistance levels were detected against gentamicin (91.11%) while Nitrofurantoin recorded the least resistance levels (13.33%) among the E. coli isolates.

Keywords: E.coli,Antibiotic resistance,Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
