Abstract

Urinary tract infections are quite common in the community medical practice. The objective of our study was to know the prescription pattern of antibiotics used in the treatment of UTI. A retrospective observational study was conducted at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal, from 1st Jan 2012 to 31st Dec 2012. The case records of 500 patients of either sex who were admitted to Kasturba Hospital, Manipal with diagnosis of UTI were studied. Majority of patients were treated with single antimicrobial agent. Cephalosporins were most commonly prescribed group of antimicrobial agent followed by penicillins. Among cephalosporins, cefoperazone-sulbactam was most commonly prescribed drug followed by ceftriaxone. In penicillins, piperacillin-tazobactam was commonly prescribed drug. Among fluoroquinolones, ciprofloxacin was commonly prescribed drug. Cephalosporins plus aminoglycosides was the most commonly prescribed combination of antimicrobial agent. At discharge, cefixime was most commonly prescribed antimicrobial agent followed by cotrimoxazole.
