Antibiotic Resistance Pattern of Urinary Pathogens in Pediatric Patients in a Tertiary Care Center at Kanpur
Abstract: Introduction: Urinary tract infection in children is an infection that occurs within the urinary tract system, which consists of the urethra, bladder and kidney. The infection is named after the location in the urinary tract. The aim of the study is to determine the Antibiotic Resistance Pattern of Urinary Pathogens in Pediatric Patients at a Tertiary Care Center at Kanpur. Material and Methods: This study was conducted in children >12 years with suspected urinary tract infections from in Rama Medical College Hospital and Research Centre Kanpur. Urine samples were collected for urinalysis and culture. Antibiotic susceptibility test was performed as per the clinical and laboratory standards institute (CLSI) guidelines 2016. Result: Common uropathogens isolated from this study showed high resistance to widely used antibiotics especially amoxycilin cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, ofloxacin, levofloxacin amikacin erythromycin, clindamycin, tetracycline, co-trimoxazole, nitrofurantoin. Conclusion: Males were more affected with urinary tract infections. Colistin, piperacillin tazobactum, gentamycin, imepenem, meropenem, norfloxacin vancomycin, tigecycline, tetracycline, co-trimoxazole linezolid, teicoplanin have lower antibiotic resistance rates and can be used in the treatment of UTI in children.
