Abstract: Klebsiella pneumoniae a human commensal is sometimes associated with urinary tract infection (UTI) due to long-term catherization, wound infections, bacterimia and nosocomial infections. This study was designed to determine the incidence of Klebsiella pneumoniae among UTI patients and included 152 urine samples. Of the 152 samples, 6 (3.95%) showed Klebsiella pneumoniae to be the causative agent. Furthermore, there was no predominating pattern in the sex-wise distribution, as of these 6 cases, 3 were females and 3 males. The antibiogram pattern showed that amikacin (100%), norfloxacin (100%) and pipemidic acid (100%) were the most effective drugs, as all the isolates were sensitive to them, whereas all the isolates were found to be resistant to ampicillin and 67% were resistant to nitrofurantin and augmentin.
