Abstract

Urinary tract infection is the most common infection causing illness in children and adults. This study was aimed to identify the uropathogens and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern. This study was done in Microbiology Department at Dhaka National Medical College & Hospital, Dhaka, during January, 2010 to December, 2010. A total of 1874 samples of urine were collected from suspected cases of urinary tract infections, from Dhaka National Medical College & Hospital. Among them, 290 (15.48%) showed significant bacterial growth. The most common uropathogens isolated were E.coli 229 (78.97%), Staph. saphrophyticus 15 (5.18%), Coliform 12 (4.13%), Klebsiella spp. 10 (3.44%), Enteococous 10 (3.44%), Staph. aureus 05 (1.72%), Streptococcus spp. 05 (1.72%) and Pseudomonas spp. 04 (1.38%). E.coli is the most common urupathogen and showed sensitivity pattern to Imipenem 84.28%, Amikacin 83.41%, Nitrofurantoin 73.80%, Gentamycin 66.88%, Ciprofloxacin 41.48%, Doxycycline 36.30%, Ceftazidime 34.50%, Ceftriaxone 33.62%, Cefexime 31.0%, Cotrimoxazole 32.31%, Nalidixic acid 24.01%, Cephradine 17.47% and Ampicillin 11.35%.
