The prevalence of Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) was evaluated in three hundred patients attending Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia Nasarawa State, Nigeria. Results showed 180 (60%) patients were positive. The most common organisms were Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Proteus mirabilis. In-vitro antibiotic susceptibility tests revealed that the gram negatives bacteria were sensitive to quinolones (ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, pefloxacin) and erythromycin, while the gram positive isolates were sensitive to lincomycin, erythromycin and quinolones (ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, pefloxacin).
Key words: UTI, bacteria, antibiotic susceptibility.
