Prevalence and Antibiotic Susceptibility of E. coli Isolated from Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Bangladesh

B.K. Bhowmick and H. Rashid

A retrospective study on Urinary tract infection (UTI) was carried out among the patients those come in a community diagnostic center in Dhaka city during January 2001 to December 2001. A total of 1951 patients were enrolled in this study and the male-female ratio was 1.12:1. Five hundred and ninety four out of 1951(30%) case was positive in bacteriological culture test. Among the positive cases 480(81%) was E. coli and other major bacteria isolated were Staphylococcus aureus (5.5%) Enterococcus spp. (5%), Pseudomonas spp. (1%), Ptoteus spp. (1%). Providencia spp., Acenetobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Citrobacter spp. etc. 38% of female cases were positive for bacteriological culture test in compare to 23.7% of male cases. E. coli resistant to Ampicillin/Amoxicillin (88%), Cetrimoxazole (84%), Tetracycline (59%), Cefriaxone (5.5%) Ceftazidine (5.5%), Cephradine (22%)Cephalexin (20.6%), Ciprofloxacin (11.5%) Gentamycin (8.1%) Nalidixic acid (40%) and Nitrofurantoxin 26.9%. Same results were found in antibiotic resistance patterns for others bacteria.
