Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyse the data of patients with significant bacteriuria pre-diagnosed as urinary tract infection (UTI) and to compare the results with the current literature. Methods: A total of 2842 women, men, children, inpatients or outpatients with significant bacteriuria who were pre-diagnosed as UTI in TOBB University of Economics and Technology Faculty of Medicine Hospital between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2017 were included in this study and the data of these patients were analysed retrospectively. Results: Of the patients with significant bacteriuria, 83.5% were female. Escherichia coli was isolated from urine cultures most frequently both in outpatient and inpatient groups regardless of gender. When bacterial growth was evaluated according to the clinics admitted, E. coli was found to be the most common with a ratio of 74.3%. In all age groups, E. coli was the first and Klebsiella spp. were the second most frequent bacteria. Conclusions: In this study, the most commonly isolated agent was found to be E. coli as indicated in the literature regardless of other parameters investigated. Besides, it was observed that ratio of patients from whom E. coli was isolated increased within the years. © 2019, AVES. All rights reserved.
