Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common infectious illnesses that afflict people, they pose a serious threat to public health and place a heavy financial burden on society. Antibacterial resistance of Enterobacteriaceae, especially the principal uropathogens Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, has dramatically developed globally as a result of the high empiric use of antibiotics for the treatment of UTI, the recovered microbial isolates were divided into 88-gram negative bacteria (88 isolates), gram positive ones (only 8 isolates) and4 yeast isolates. Our results include fungal isolates three as Candida tropicalis and only one was Candida dubliniensis; the rest of one hundred isolates which represent eighteen bacterial isolates clarified as Gram-negative Bacteria which contain E. coli with ratio 46(44%), Klebsiella pneumoniae 24 (25%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa 10(10%), Enterobacter cloacae 2(2%) and Acinetobacter baumannii, Citrobacter koseri, Serratia liquefaciens, Serratia Plymuthica, Sphingomonas paucimobilis, Morganella morganii with 1(1%) for each of them ,and Gram-positive bacteria watch clarified as follows, Staphylococcus lentus and, Staphylococcus haemolyticus with ratio 2(2%) for each them and Staphylococcus xylosus, Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Enterococcus sp with 1 % for each of them. All isolates were tested against different antibiotics in order to determine their antibiotic resistance pattern. Among one hundred isolates many isolates were MDR (72%), After conducting statistical operations, the samples were selected are (2, 21, 38, 45 and 87) as the most resistant isolates to antibiotics.
