Urinary tract infection is second only to upper respiratory infection in incidence. Moreover, the causative organisms are easily identified. The treatment of such infections, however, often taxes the ability of the ablest clinician.
Of the many pathogenic bacteria that have at one time or another been isolated from the urine, only about a half dozen cause us repeated and frequent concern. Urinary organisms are immediately separated into gram negative bacilli or gram positive cocci. Among the gram negative bacilli we invariably find, either singly or in combination,
1. Escherichia colt
2. Aerobacter aerogenes
3. Pseudomonas aeruginosa (B. pyocyaneus)
