In order to determine the resistance pattern against five different groups of antimicrobial agents, six different species of bacteria were isolated from among two hundred cases of UTIs. The front line antibiotics for treating urinary tract infection due to Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Staphylococcus aureus and Proteus species should include Cephradine, Ofloxacin, Cefaclor, Cephalothin and Pipemidic acid. However, for treating UTI due to Pseudomonas species, the drug of choice must be a member of fluoroquinoline group (norfloxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin).

Keywords: Urinary infections, E. coli, Staph Aureus, Proteus.
