A study of urinary tract infection in children had been planed to identify the bacterial causes ,also the color, cloudiness ,acidity of urine were registered for each sample . A urine culture was performed to detect the presence of bacteria as well as its antibiotic sensitivity test .
Pyuria was diagnosed in 100 patients( 30) males and (70) females.The number of positive urine cultures for E .coli were 37(66%), Staphylococcus saprophyticus 4(7.1%) ,Proteus10(18%) , Klebsiella3(5.4%) , Pseudomonas1(1.8%),and , Enterobacter1(1.8%) .
The antibiotics susceptibility of Escherichia coli isolates was characterized by high resistance to amoxicillin 83.8%, cotrimaxazole 41%,while it was susceptible to nitrofurantoin , nalidixic acid , cefotaxime , gentamicin. The high resistance among Klebsiella pneumoniae 66.7% also toward amoxicillin and 100% for cefotaxime, but it was susceptible to nitrofurantoin and cotrimaxazole .
The high resistance of proteus sp.100%to amoxicillin was noticed while it was sensitive for nalidixic acid20% and cefotaxime40%. Staphylococcus saprophyticus isolates were sensitive to cefotaxime25%, nalidixic acid 25% and nitrofurantoin .
Pseudomonas and Enterobacter were sensitive to cefotaxime and nitrofurantoin .
