Title: Identification and Sensitivity of Aerobic Bacteria Isolated from Urine of Chronic Renal Failure Patients
Author: Mohamed Sayed Ahmed Ali, Badria
Abstract: Sudan is a large country with about 39 million people and an annual incidence of chronic renal failure (CRF) of about 70-140 pmp/year. This study was conducted toevaluate the presence of urinary tract infection (UTI) and identify the bacteria commonly associated with this infection in Sudanese patients with CRF. Fifty patients were randomly selected from patients with CRF being treated by heamodialysis (HD) in the periodfrom March 2006 to May 2007. The study revealed that the male: female ratio was 1.9:1 and all of them were out patients. The prevalence of significant RBCs on urine was 42% and that of significant pyuria was 38%. The presence of bacterial infection on urine culture was 74%. The commonest organism isolated was Escherichia coli, accounting for 42%.The other isolates were Proteus mirabilis12% , Pseudomonas aeruginosa6% , Staphylococcus saprophyticus 14% , Staphylococcus caseolyticus14% , Staphylococcus intermedius12% , and Staphylococcus aureus4%. Of the isolated organisms, 98% were sensitive to one or more of the tested antibiotics, and the best antibiotics of high effectiveness were Gentamycin (96.7%) and Nalidixic acid (70%)
