Abstract

This study was conduced during October 2010-March 2011 with the collaboration of the microbiology laboratory of International Evangelical Hospital (Voltri division) to identify the most frequent pathogens isolates from Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) and to evaluate their antibiotics susceptibility patterns. Overall, 780 consecutive, non duplicate strains were collected and sent to the coordinating laboratory. 143 strains were from Healthcare settings and 637 from comunity acqueired infections.The most rappresented pathogens was E. coli. In our region the epidemiological community landscape in terms of resistance, is getting closer to the nosocomial setting.
