Prevalence of ESBL urinary tract infection in children


Author(s): Mihir Meyers

Abstract: Escherichia coli has been known as the commonest causative organism of the majority of urinary tract infections in children with prevalence ranging from 80-90% [3]. Extended- spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) are enzymes produced by Gram-Negative Bacilli (GNB), accountable for fighting against penicillin, cephalosporin and aztreonam [4]. The prevalence of ESBL producing bacteria is dissimilar internationally, with varying records from North America, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia [5-7]. This is clinically significant, leading to increased risk of prescribing ineffective empirical therapy and augmenting resistance to antibiotics, which in recent years, turned into a leading trouble worldwide [8,9], and correlating with intensified healthcare expense [10].
