Objective: To find the sensitivity patterns of uro-pathogens to the commonly prescribed antibiotics for UTI in paediatric
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of urine culture and sensitivity from the record of 143 patients referred
by Paediatric department and reported by pathology department, Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar from January 2018
to June 2018 was done.
RESULTS: The commonest pathogen found was E. Coli(71.23%) followed by Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter,
Pseudomonasauroginosa and Providencia species. The sensitivity of E. coliwas (27.4%) to Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole
(9.8 - 39.2%)to commonly used drugs from cephalosporin group and (39.25 %) to Ciprofloxacin. On the other
hand, its sensitivity was(100%) to Meronem,(99%) to Gentamycin and Imipenem,(87.2%)to Fosfomycin and (98.9%)to
Nitrofurantoin. Multi drug resistance ofE. Coli frequency was 83.39% as per our study.
CONCLUSION: E. Coli is the commonest pathogen causing UTI and its antibiotic sensitivity varies over time and
