Abstract

A total number of 3690 urine samples were processed in the Microbiology Department during one year period, of which 589 were culture positive. Among them Escherichia coli (45%), Klebsiella spp. (15%), Enterobactor cloacae (12%), Staphylococcus aureus (6%), Enterococcus faecalis (9.8%), Pseudomonas spp. (9%), coagulase negative Staphylococci (1.1%) and Acinetobactor spp.(2.1%) were the predominant organisms.31.6% Escherichia coli and 20.4% Klebsiella pneumoniae were Extended spectrum β lactamase (ESBL) producers. They  also showed multidrug resistance to quinolones and aminoglycosides. Carbapenemase producers were also increased among ESBL producers.
