  Urinary tract infections were investigated in order to screen for the linked causative bacterial agent. One hundred seventy patients with clinical symptoms of urinary tract infections were examined. It was found that 119 of the patients had actual laboratory evidence for urinary tract infections. One hundred and nine of them were discovered by the routine work and the remaining 10 patients were detected by the filtration of 50 mL of urine through a filter paper and culturing the filter paper due to the low counts of bacteria in their samples. The result of different examination test suggest that the Escherichia coli is responsible for the large proportion of infection (53.24%), followed by other strains like Enterococcus faecalis (24.05%), Proteus sp. (19.537%), Staphylococcus aureus (19.206%), Staphylococcus epidermidis (7.8%), Staphylococcus saprophyticus (13.2%), Klebsiella sp. (11.96%), Enterobacter sp. (5.128%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (3.4%), Citrobacter sp. 1.92% and Serratia marcescens (0.8%). The most spreaded bacteria in female was Escherichia coli, while the most spreaded bacteria in male was Proteus sp. The proportion of urinary tract infections in female was 81%, while the proportion in male was 19%. The proportion of infection in married male was 10%, while in single male was 9%, compared with a proportion of 55% in married female and 26% in single female. For the treatment of urinary tract infection the antibiotic Ciprofloxacin (5 μg disk-1) was found to be most effective antimicrobial agents against all isolated bacteria strains, while Oxacillin (1 μg disk-1) was found to be the least effective.
