Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the increasing trend in antibiotic resistance pattern of uropathogens in Kashmir Valley, India. Escherichia coli was the most prevalent isolate.

Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.013

Objective: Increase in resistance pattern of urinary tract pathogens to conventional antimicrobial agents used for urinary tract infections (UTIs) are gaining the attention of many microbiologists worldwide in respect to treatment of UTIs. The aim of the present study was to obtain data on resistance patterns of pathogens responsible for UTIs in Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (tertiary healthcare hospital) to currently used antimicrobial agents.
