Incidence of isolation and antibiotic resistance of E. coli responsible for urinary infections outside hospitals, in specialized hospitals and in general hospitals

Incidence of isolation and antibiotic resistance of E. coli responsible for urinary infections outside hospitals, in specialized hospitals and in general hospitals

Pathologie-Biologie 32(5): 389-392

E. coli is the agent most frequently isolated in urinary infection. In 1982, rates of E. coli isolation were 87% in outpatient laboratories, 63% in general hospitals and 41% in specialized hospitals. Susceptibility to ampicillin was less frequent in outpatients (43%) than in hospitalized patients (67%). In both, isolated strains were susceptible to the major urinary antiseptics ( furans , nalidixic acid, pipemidic acid) and even more so to aminoglycosides. Resistance to beta-lactams was compared in outpatients (1981) and general hospital patients (1982):TEM plasmid resistance was found in 72% and 57% of strains respectively. Resistance to quinolones was unremarkable for all strains studied except for one NALs PIPr phenotype strain recovered from an outpatient.
