The poorest quartile had a predicted prevalence of 8.67% (95% CI 6.59%-10.73%) for significant bacteriuria and 4.68% (95% CI 3.23%-6.13%) for bacteriuria caused by ESBL organisms.
Out of the 384 study subjects (185 female and 199 males between the ages of 0 and 15 years) who participated in this study, only 61 (15.8%) had urine samples with significant bacteriuria. The findings of this study were similar to those reported in Nigeria [14], Iran [15], and Egypt [16], where prevalence rates of UTI documented were 11.96%, 16.2%, and 15.05%, respectively.
Criteria for significant bacteriuria: Presence of greater than 105 cfu/ml of non-coliforms or greater than 102 cfu/ml of coliforms in a symptomatic woman.
with growth of two or more organisms on culture, were considered not to indicate significant bacteriuria. Antibiotic sensitivities were determined by the streak method.
Material and Methods: The study group was composed of 71 patients with myelodysplasia who were found to have significant bacteriuria (age: 8.20[+ or -]4.57 years; 39 girls) and the control groups was composed of 49 children who were diagnosed with community-acquired urinary tract infection (age: 7.94[+ or -]4.17 years; 29 girls).
Tests for bacteria or pyuria do not establish a diagnosis of UTI, but are important aspects of the diagnosis when symptoms are present.[sup.3] Both the SCIRE[sup.5] and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN)[sup.3] indicate that [greater than or equal to]10[sup.8] (cfu/L) represents significant bacteriuria and that antibiotics should be considered when symptoms are present.
A significant bacteriuria has been found in approximately 20% of community-dwelling elderly women and in 10% of older men; this rate almost doubles after 80 years of age.
(3) This is confirmed in the presence of significant bacteriuria based on isolation of [greater than or equal to] [10.sup.5] cfu/ml of same species of bacteria in properly collected and transported midstream urine during a screening test.
Significant bacteriuria in relation to long-term diabetic manifestations.
During the study period, 32,416 samples of urine were submitted, of which 6218 (19.1%) had significant bacteriuria. Of these, a total of 224 isolates of Acb complex were obtained.
At clinically significant bacteriuria (105 CFU/ml and more) the infectious agent of infection was considered a bacteria isolated from the highest cultivation of urine.
