Abstract :

Urinary tract infection is one of the most common bacterial infections seen in clinical practice particularly in developing countries. The present study shall focus on microorganisms responsible for urinary tract infection and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern in a Tertiary Care Hospital in North East India. This study was conducted between January 2017 and May 2018 to check the changing pattern of antibiotic sensitivity among uropathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTI).Out of 188 urine samples, 134(71%) were found to be sterile and 40(21%) depicted bacterial growth and 14(7%) were found to be mixed growth. The most common organisms isolated were Escherichia coli 24(13%) followed by Klebsiella spp. 6 (3%).E.coli isolates reflected maximum sensitivity to Nitrofurantoin, Cefotaxime,Gentamicin,Ceftriaxone–sulbactum,Piperacillin–Tazobactum (100%). This study suggested the need for constant monitoring of susceptibility of specific pathogens in different populations to commonly used anti–microbial agents and formulate local antibiotic policies.
