Misbah Atta, Ali Husnain, khushba Khalid


Objective: To analyze the incidence of microorganisms responsible for UTI and calculate the occurrence in males and females.


Design of study: Cross sectional study/ Prospective study.


Place of Study: Study was conducted in Urology department in Mayo Hospital Lahore.


Duration of study: 9 months (August 2017- April 2018).


Materials and Methods: Patients between the ages of 19-75 years were selected for the study of UTI. Mostly recorded patients were between 20-40 years of age. These patients were selected on random basis. No biased criteria was used. All these patients visited the Urology department of Mayo Hospital Lahore with the burning micturition. Data collection was done using questionnaire.


Results: Total 200 patients were selected and it included 100 males and 100 females. Urine samples were taken and sent to the authentic laboratory for culture. In positive cases most common microorganism that were found included E.coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus Aureus and Candida species.

Conclusion: The study showed that incidence of UTI is more common in women than men and that micro bacteria E.coli is the main culprit in most of these infections.
