Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) occurs due to inflammation of the urinary tract including bladder, urethra and kidneys by invading gram-negative bacteria especially E. coli. Signs and symptoms of UTI are fever, vomiting, nausea and irritation during urination. Clinical diagnosis is done by using a nitrite test and microbial culture on Cysteine Lactose Electrolyte Deficient (CLED) media plates. Penicillin, cephalosporin, carbapenem and some other antibiotics are used to cure this infection.
