Abstract: Selection of antibiotic to treat multidrug resistant urinary tract infections [UTIs] empirically has become a real challenge due to the resistance exhibited by the multidrug resistant bacterial infections. Considering this fact, a retrospective study was conducted to determine an empiric antibiotic for treating UTIs. Results of our study suggested that UTIs were caused by Enterobacteriaece and most cases were due to infection by Escherichia coli. We could also conclude that empirically the physician can start treatment with Nitrofurantoin in UTI patients on OPD basis.
