Isolation of Escherichia Coli and Klebseilla from Patient with Urinary Tract Infection
Keywords:Urinary tract infection, Escherichia coli, Klebseilla, Resistant to antibiotic
Background: Resistance to antibiotics arising in Escherichia coli and Klebseilla species isolates may complicate therapeutic management of urinary tract infection(UTI) by this organism.
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess antibiotic activity against UTI isolates of E.coli in Al- Najaf governorate.
Methodology: A total of 81 mid-stream urine samples were collected of patient suspected of UTI and screened for the occurrence of E.coli.
Result: Susceptibility of the isolates to antibiotics was test by standard methods. Highest rate of resistance (100%) was found to ampicillin and amoxicillin, while moderately resistant to cephalothin .
Conclusion: The present study concluded that E.coli resistance to multiple antibiotic were recognized.
