From the period of March to thirty August 2015, 210 urine samples were collected from patients with signs and symptoms of UTIs with an age range of 20-60 years, who referred to outpatient department of AlKarama teaching hospital, Baghdad. Out of 210 samples of urine 150(71.43%) were positive culture and 50(23.81%) were negative culture while 10 (4.76%) were showed contaminated urine culture. The common isolated bacteria were E. coli 45 (30%), K. pneumonia 33(22%)as Gram negative bacteria respectively ,while Gram positive bacteria was Staphylococcus aureus 42( 28% ).The other bacteria were Enterobacter spp.20 (13.3%), Proteus spp. 6( 4% ), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa4 (2.7% ). Susceptibility testing were used with the following antibiotic disks: Ciprofloxacin , Amikacin , Nitrofurantion ,Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol , Gentamicin , Pipracillin , Nalidixic acid , Tetracycline , Imipenem , Ceftriaxone , and Cefotaxime. The percentage of susceptibility showed variable susceptibility to the antibiotics used. All bacteria showed (100%) susceptible to Imipenem while all bacteria showed (100%) resistant to Tetracycline. Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated bacteria was showed multidrug resistant (MDR); seven antibiotics: Nitrofurantion, Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol, Pipracillin, Nalidixic acid, Tetracycline, Ceftriaxone and Cefotaxime.
