Isolation and identification of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria from urinary tract infections in humans and study of their sensitivity to antibiotics


This study aimed to isolate Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria from urinary tractinfections in human and study the sensitivity of this bacteria to different antibiotic . In this study, 100 urine samples were collected from human. The results of bacterial isolation from these samples reported 17 isolates of Klebsiellapneumoniae bacteria from human. These isolates were diagnosed through bacteriological culture on MaCconkey agar, blood agar medium, XLD and EMB, aswell as biochemical tests, and finally the samples were fixed with Vitek_2 deviceto ensure their return to Klebsiella pneumoniae. An antibiotic sensitivity test wasconducted for the isolated samples, where Klebsiella pneumoniae showed highresistance to Amoxicillin, Penicillin, Erythromycin and Amikacin at rates of 100%,100%, 100% and 90%, respectively, while the resistance of bacteria to Ciprofloxacin, Cefotaxime and Tobramycin was relatively less, where it was 86% and 70%and 85%, respectively, while the bacteria were sensitive to levofloxacin and gentamicin at rates of 48% and 40%, respectively.
