Bacterial etiologic agents of urinary tract infection in children in the Islamic Republic of Iran
AbstractThe 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 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
