Abstract : Urinary Tract Infection is one of the most common bacterial infections seen in clinical practice par-ticularly in developing countries. The causative agents for Urinary tract infection vary from place to place and they also vary in their susceptibility and resistance patterns.Objectives: Study is to determine the etiological bacterial pathogens of UTI and to determine the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of isolates Material and Methods: A total of 855 urine samples from OPD and IPD patients of Microbiology SIMS, Shimoga. These samples were subjected to culture and susceptibility test with use of standard bacteriological techniques as described by CLSI guidelines Results: 30.90% of the total urinary samples showed significant bacterial growth. 12 different bacterial species isolated. Among these, E.coli (30.29%) was significantly the most predominant followed by Enterococcus species (18.24%), Staphylococcus saprophyticus (13.35%), Kleb- siella pneumoniae (9.12%) and others.E.coli is highly sensitive to amikacin (81.72%) followed by imipenem(89.24%) and Piperacillin (89.24%)Conclusion: This study will be continued to include more number of samples to determine sensitivity and resistance pattern of bacterial isolates in UTI
