Bacterial Uropathogens from Patients of Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia at a Tertiary Care Hospital in India

Parijat Das, Vipin Pathak, Kumar Shrutiraaj

Abstract: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) predisposes the patients to Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) which causes significant morbidity. Urine from such patients suffering from LUTS was cultured for bacterial uropathogens and ABST was done. The predominant bacterial isolate among gram negative bacteria was E. coli n=70 (36.26 %) and among gram positive was Staphylococcus aureus n= 21 (10.89 %). The resistance in Enterobacteriaceae encountered in our study was: Ampicillin (65.15 %), Augmentin (60.6 %), Piperacillin-Tazobactam (31.81 %), Cefepime (31.06 %), Ceftriaxone (30.3 %), Imipenem (13.63 %), Gentamicin (32.57 %), Tetracycline (43.93 %), Ciprofloxacin (46.96 %), Cotrimoxazole (43.93 %), Nitrofurantoin (25.75 %) and Chloramphenicol (41.66 %). Amongst the gram positive isolates the incidence of MRSA isolates was 23.81 %.
