Making the diagnosis of urinary tract infection (UTI) and deciding when to initiate antimicrobial therapy remains a challenge to healthcare providers. This study was focused on the identification of bacterial pathogens causing UTI as well the evaluation of related antibiogram. A cross-sectional study was carried out over a period of one year (March 2018 to February 2019) in the Western part of Burkina Faso. In total, 388 urines samples were collected from individuals with suspected UTIs attending the Regional Hospital of Dedougou. Samples were inoculated on recommended media and isolation-identification of the bacterial strains were performed using standard microbiological protocols. Antibiotic susceptibility was carried out following European committee on antimicrobial susceptibility testing (EUCAST) recommended guidelines. The overall hospital prevalence of UTIs was 66% with 78.1% for males and 21.9% for females. In addition, half of the patients were under antibiotic treatment. Out of the 388 tested specimens, 132 (34.02%) had significant bacterial growth. Escherichia coli (44.7%) was the most frequently isolated specie and 56.8% of the strains were isolated from male patients. Enterobacterales were mainly resistant to amoxicillin-clavulanate, amoxicillin, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Cocci isolates were resistance to oxacillin, norfloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. At least, 17 of the Enterobacterales and 9 of the Cocci were multidrug resistant. The majority of isolates were resistant to commonly prescribed antibiotics. Therefore, the physician should strictly follow the culture report before starting therapy to prevent the emergence of multidrug resistance.
