Asymptomatic Bacteriuria has been maximally associated with Diabetes Mellitus. In the present study, a total of 125 midstream urine samples were processed, 40% showed significant bacteruiria. Macroscopically predominance was of pale color (88%) and cloudy in nature while microscopically was of pyuria (82%).Gram Negative (46%)isolates were in predominance followed by Gram Positive (36%) and Candida species (9%). In Gram negative isolates, E.coli (56.52%) was the prevailing organism while in Gram Positive isolates Staphylococcus aureus (36.8%). Nitrofurantoin was the most sensitive antibiotics against gram positive however Ciprofloxacin for Gram negative bacteria.
