Abstract

Background: The antibiotic sensitivity pattern of uropathogenic bacteria is varied with different frequency. Objective: The purpose of the study was to determine the pattern of antibiotic sensitivity against uropathogens isolated from a tertiary care hospital of Dhaka City. Methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Microbiology at Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College, Dhaka, Bangladesh during period of January 2016 to December 2016. Among 307 consecutive urine samples were collected from patients of UTI in the microbiology laboratory. Samples were mid-stream urine specimens obtained by clean catch method received from various outpatient departments and inpatient wards were transported to the microbiology laboratory in sterile leak proof container were processed immediately. Bacteria were isolated and identified by standard laboratory procedure. Results: Of the 307 urine samples processed 170(55.4%) gave significant growth of pathogens. The prevalence of UTI is high among females (58.2%) than males (41.8%). The commonest isolates were Escherichia coli (71.2%), Pseudomonas (12.4%), Staphylococcus aureus (10.6%), Acinotobactor (4.1%) and Klebsiella (1.8%). Majority (92.4%) of (uropathogens) isolates were found to be MDR. Conclusion: The study revealed that E. coli is the predominant uropathogens of UTIs.
