Detection of some Bacterial Uropathogens in Male Students at the Institute of Medical Technology / Al - Mansour

Abstract

Infections of urinary tract are the second most common type of infection in the body. About 80-90% of urinary tract infections are caused by E.coli, these bacteria live normally in the human intestine but sometimes get into urinary tract .Some of urinary tract infections are caused by other bacteria like Proteus spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Enterococcus faecalis .This study reports the presence of the major uropathogenic species in urine samples from students, and their resistance patterns to many antibacterial agents may help the clinician to choose the correct empirical treatment against the urinary pathogens isolated from students of Institute of medical Technology /Al-Mansour /Baghdad /Iraq, from March to April 2016. Midstream urine was collected from 400 students, all of them were males. The urine samples were processed with microbial isolates identified by using blood agar and MacConkey agar. Out of (400) urine samples from students at Medical Technology Institute /Al-Mansour,( 164) samples showed a positive culture growth ,while (236) samples have no growth. The bacteria are Escherchia coli , Staphylococcus aureus , Klebsiella pneumoniae , Enterococcus faecalis and Proteus mirabilis were (73.2 , 20.7 , 2.4 , 2.4 and 1.2) %respectively.
