Distribution of drug resistant bacteria among different age groups of UTI patients in Dhaka locality


Tasnia Ahmed, Md Sala Uddin

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is very commonly occurred infection worldwide and also a frequently occurring nosocomial infection. Urinary tract infection can be caused by pathogenic bacteria and fungus but bacteria are the most prevalent while causing UTI. Some common bacteria causing UTI are Escherichia coli, Proteus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Pseudomonas spp. This is occurred under some circumstances only because in normal condition it is not easy to get infected in the urinary tract for normal host defense mechanism of healthy individual. In the current study, about fifty UTI patients were selected randomly to detect the pathogen responsible for causing urinary tract infection. Antibiotic resistance pattern was also determined after proper identification of the responsible bacterial isolates. Among the 50 patients, seven bacterial isolates (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas spp., Klebsiella spp., Acinetobacter spp., Enterobacter spp. and Citrobacter freundii) were found to be responsible to cause UTI. Escherichia coli were predominant in female patients whereas Pseudomonas spp. was predominant in male patients. Most of the infected patients were females (39 female patients out if 50). All pathogens were resistant to antibiotics. We used twenty two antibiotics and found only 3 isolates to be resistant to one antibiotic (Nalidixic acid) only. About 28 isolates out of 50 were found to ESBL producers. Three isolates of Pseudomonas spp. were found to be resistant to 21 antibiotics out of 22 used during this study. Advancements in new, susceptible drug development is very necessary to fight with these multidrug resistant pathogens.
