In a retrospective study, significant bacteriuria, indicating urinary tract infection, occurred in 32% of specimens received from urological units and in 14% of specimens received from the other units in “Seventh of April” Hospital. E. coli was the predominant organism isolated from both groups of patients (30% and 45% respectively). Some degree of resistance to cotrimethoxazole was found in most organisms isolated.
