Abstract: 
Background and objectives: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common nosocomial infection worldwide. Forty percent of nosocomial infections occur in the urinary tract, and greater than 80% of these infections are secondary to an indwelling urethral catheter. Bacteria causing UTI are one of the antibacterial agent resistance source. In addition, UTI increases the duration of hospitalization and there are medical and financial implications associated with UTIs. The aim of this study was to identify the bacteria caused UTI in catheterized patients and to determine their in vitro susceptibility to antimicrobial agents.
Materials and methods: Urine samples were cultured by standard loop method. The 105 CFU/ml cultures were assumed as positive. After identification of bacterial species by biochemical tests, susceptibility of each isolate was assessed by disk diffusion method according to CLSI guidelines.
Results: In this study 181 urine samples were bacteriologically analyzed. The bacteria were identified by biochemical tests, the antibiogram was performed. E. coli was the most frequent observed bacteria, followed by Klebsiella spp., Pseudomonas spp. and Enterococcus spp., respectively. This study exhibited high antimicrobial resistance which caused by high antimicrobial consumption among these patients.
Conclusion: This study revealed that different kind of Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria causing UTI in catheterized patients. These bacteria have significant roles in nosocomial infections and antibacterial resistance.
