Abstract

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of urinary system (kidneys, ureters, bladder and
urethra). Most infections involve the lower urinary tract, the bladder and the urethra. Women are at greater
risk of developing a UTI than are men. In this study, (50) urine sample were collected from (50) patients
with suspected urinary tract infection, during the period from December (2017) to March (2018). The results
of this study revealed that (70%) of samples was positive for bacterial culture, while (30%) of sample have
no growth. The bacterial culture shown that (18) (51.43%) of bacterial isolates was E. coli followed by
Staphylococcus aureus (8) (22.86%) and Klebsiella spp (17.14%) (6) , Proteus spp .(8.57%) (3). In-vitro,
the susceptibility of bacteria towards some antibiotics included in this study revealed that the Ciprofloxacin,
Gentamicin, and Chloramphenicol are the most effective antibiotics to different types of pathogenic bacteria.
