Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the leading cause of death among patients and majority of people visiting the hospital worldwide. In the current quantitative study, urine samples were obtained using sterile method and 100 isolates, including 60 Escherichia coli, 28 Klebsiella sp., and 12 Proteus sp., were investigated in a laboratory. Current study showed that E. coli 60/100 (60%) was the most common cause of UTI followed by Klebsiella sp. 28/100 (28%) and Proteus sp. 12/100 (12%). Cefotaxime (86.67% sensitive) was found to be the best drug for treating infections with E. coli, ceftazidime (100% sensitive) for infections with Klebsiella sp., and imipenem and levofloxacin (100% sensitive) for infections with Proteus sp. Overall, 51% of the isolated strains showed high multidrug resistance (MDR). Because of the alarming increase in extensively drug-resistant and MDR uropathogens, which is a concern in public health, the rational use of antimicrobial therapy should be implemented.
