Abstract
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is common bacterial infection in mankind. The changing antimicrobial sensitivity in UTI demands use of appropriate antibiotics. A prospective study was performed in Comilla Medical Collage during the period of January 2011 to December 2011 with 551 adult patients presented with symptoms suggestive of UTI. The study was designed to isolate and identify the nature of bacteria in UTI with their sensitivity pattern to common antibiotics. Of the 551 tested samples, 131 samples showed growth of pathogens among which the most prevalent were E. coli 98 (75%) followed by Klebsiella pneumonia 14 (10.7%) and Enterococcus 8 (6%). The majority 96 (73.3%) of the isolates were from female while the remaining were from male and this sex difference was statistically significant (p<0.001). Imipenem, meropenem, amikacin, nitrofurantoin, gentamycin, mecillinum and amoxyclav are found to be effective against 76-100% of the uropathogens. Most powerful antibiotics in our study were imipenem, meropenem, amikacin and nitrofurantoin which show their efficacy against 91-100% isolates. In more than 60% case shows their resistance against amoxycillin, nalidexic acid, cefixime, ciprofloxacin, cotrimoxazole and cephalosporins which raises the question regarding rationality to empirically use of these antibiotics in UTI without culture and sensitivity reports. Urinary isolates are more sensitive to imipenem, meropenem, amikacin and nitrofurantoin. There is every need to constantly monitor culture and sensitivity pattern. Large scale prospective studies are necessary in tertiary level hospital to make a guide line for antibiotics in UTI.
