Introduction: Due to high variability of resistance patterns which vary even over short periods of time, periodic evaluation of such activity is essential. Aim: To document the prevalence, antibiotic susceptibility and resistance patterns of uropathogens in the area to ensure appropriate therapy. Methods: This is a cross sectional study on 5108 urine samples from June 2014 to May 2015. Antibiotic susceptibility testing was done by Kirby- Bauer disc diffusion method and compared. Gram positive cocci and Gram negative bacilli detected were further subjected to detection of Methicillin resistant Staphyloccocussureus (MRSA) by Cefoxitin disc diffusion tests and detection of Extended Spectrum Beta lactamases (ESBL) by ESBL screening test and confirmed by combined disc diffusion test(CDT).
