Abstract: The bacterial agents of urinary tract infections were studied in 1650 children under 12 years of age between April 1993 and March 1995. It was found that 25.8% [425/1650] of infants and children showed bacteriuria [>10[5] bacteria per millilitre of urine]. Escherichia coli was responsible for 71.0% of all infections. Infections caused by Proteus spp. were predominantly found in boys. Girls showed a higher prevalence of infection [35.3%] than boys [18.3%], which was statistically highly significant [P < 0.001]. The most commonly isolated bacteria were partially or totally sensitive to the aminoglycosides, chloramphenicol and nalidixic acid
