This study was conducted into Al-hakkem general hospital in Najf governorate during the period from Jan-December,2012. In which a total of 426 urine specimens were collected from out and in patient with urinary tract infection. 428 bacterial strains were isolated from UTI. E.coli (38%) was the commonest bacteria followed by Klebsiella spp. (21.1%) ,Streptococcus spp.(14.3%),Staphylococcus spp. (12.6%) ,Enterobacter spp.(5.3%),Proteus spp.(4.4%) ,Pseudomonas spp. (3.5%) and Acinetobacter spp.(0.9%). three peaks of E.coli incidence were obtained . The first one occurred in march and the second one in July ,and the third one in September. Over 50% of E.coli strains were resistant to CFM ,CTX and AMC , The strain of Klebsiella spp. Presented a high resistant to CTX (61.1%)and CFM(61.1%). The strain of Enterobacter spp. showed 52% resistant to CFM. The strain of proteus spp. showed 84.2% resistant to COT and low resistant to TMP 63.1% and GEN 47.3%. Pseudomonas spp.strains were 66.6%resistant to COT and 60%and 53.3%were resistant to AMC and CFM. Over 60%of Staph.aureus strains were resistant to CFM and CTX. the high resistant Streptococcus spp. to CFM. Fifty percent of Acintobacter spp. Strains presented resistant to AMC ,AK and NA . And 100%sensitive to CIP ,CTX,CTR,CRO and TOB.
