Murtada E Alamin*, Khalid A Abdelhalim, Maha E Alawad

ABSTRACT

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are serious health problems affecting millions of people each year. They are considered as the second most common type of infection in the body. This study was conducted to determine the bacterial load of urinary tract infections (UTIs) among pediatrics in Khartoum province. Two hundred urine specimens were collected from suspected patients for urine culture, from three hospitals namely; Khartoum pediatrics hospital (Jaafar bin Oaf Hospital), Turkey Hospital, and Bashair Hospital. The study included isolation and identification of bacteria from urine specimens and their susceptibility testing for anti-microbial agents. A 76/200 (38%) specimens of urine culture showed bacterial growth while 124/200 (62%) showed no bacterial growth. The isolated bacteria were E.coli (13.5%), Staphylococcus aureus (7.5%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (5.5%), Candida albicans (4%), Enterococcus fecaellis (3.5%), Proteus vulgaris (2.5%), Citrobacter (0.5%), Proteus mirabilis (0.5%), and Provedncia (0.5%). The isolated bacteria showed different patterns of susceptibility and resistance to the available antibiotics. Higher resistant levels were detected in Amoxicillin, Gentamicin, and Amoxyclav respectively.

Keywords: Etiology, UTIs, Susceptibility, Antimicrobial, Resistance.
