Abstract :

<p><p> Colonization of E.coliin vagina is recognized as an extra intestinal manifestation, associated with various infections.Occurrence of ESBL producing E.colihasbecome major concern due to its limited therapeutic option.Aim of the study is to detect, ESBL producingE. coli isolated from women with symptomatic genital tract infection.A total of 200 High Vaginal Swabs were collected, among whichsignificant growth of pathogens was detected in 185 samples. 47 samples were positive for E.coli. 53% of E.coliwas found to be resistant to 3G cephalosporins and all the 53%of resistant isolateswere detected as ESBL producers phenotypically.As there are only limited reportsavailable regarding the presence of ESBL producing E.coliin vagina of pregnant and non pregnant women in India. This study may be helpful for clinicians to be aware of the presence of ESBL–producing organisms in vagina and initialization of surveillance studies to ascertain this.</p></p>
