Why is treating a UTI a challenge?

Studies indicated different Drug Sensitivity patterns for the same organism

% of cases in women found sensitive to the antibioticsSensitivity Pattern (in %)
Amoxi-ClavCefiximeNitrofurantoinFluoroquinolone
E.Coli48367435
Klebsilla44441961
Pseudomonas00064
Proteus6569051

ESBL: Extended Spectrum b Lactamase

The difference in sensitivity pattern is due to variable ESBL production in gram –ve organism with the age group

  • Higher Age – Higher ESBL
  • Higher ESBL – Lower Sensitivity
  • Higher Age – Lower Sensitivity

Therefore

Urine culture test is essential in each case of UTI
