Background The most common bacterial infection occurred in the urinary tract. Urinary tract infections are diseases of infancy and older age. In the first 3 months of life these infections occurred due to blood spread that is means bacteremia while in older patients urinary tract infection usually occurred because of upward ascending rout via the urethra. Aim of study: The incidence rates of UTIs during the first year of life and in patients less than 15 years old is studied. Also their association with gender, sex, and determine the antibiotic sensitivity of bacterial isolates. Patients and Methods: During two calendar years 2015 and 2016. 2758 urine samples were collected from children 0-15 years old at Ibn- Al Balady hospital in Baghdad city. Two methods were used for culture of urine: vitek test and conventional biochemical test. Sensitivity to antibiotics done by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method. Results: The incidence rate in girls was more than in boys. Out of them (2758) 834 have growth (UTI) and 1924 have no growth. E.coli was the highest percentage 33.21 %. Klebsiella spp. (8.51 %), proteus spp. 9.95 %, Salmonella typhi 0.47 % and Pantoea spp. was the lowest percentage (0.35 %). Conclusion: The incidence of urinary tract infection is high as shown in this study. The most common organism cultured from uncomplicated UTI is Enterobacteriaceae. Many factors aided in the initial choice of antibacterial drugs these factors include patients age and antibacterial sensitivity in the particular region.
