|Issue Date:||May-1992||Citation:||Chan, R.K.,Lye, W.C.,Lee, E.J.,Kumarasinghe, G.,Lim, H.Y. (1992-05). Community acquired urinary tract infections in Singapore: a microbiological study.. Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore 21 (3) : 361-363. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We studied 214 patients with culture proven community acquired infections. A total of 219 organisms were isolated, of which 68.2% were Escherichia coli, 10.1% Klebsiella sp and 5.5% Proteus mirabilis. Gram positive cocci accounted for 10.5% of organisms isolated. The majority of organisms isolated were sensitive to nalidixic acid (81.1%), nitrofurantoin (80.7%), cephalexin (74.7%) and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole (65.0%). Resistance to ampicillin was common (49.8%), as such the use of ampicillin in community acquired urinary tract infections will result in a high failure rate.||Source Title:||Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129177||ISSN:||03044602|
