Urinary tract infections represent a frequent, infectious casuistry of the neurologic patient, often recurrent, with the significant involvement of multidrug-resistant bacteria (MDRs). A retrospective study, during the period 01.01.2018-31.12.2018, in the Clinical Neurology Hospital in Craiova, on a group of 334 Px with urinary tract infections and proven microbial etiology (positive urocultures), for whom antibiograms were performed using KIRBY-BAUER disk diffusion test. The duplicates and samples considered contaminated were excluded from the study. Urinary tract infections are frequently encountered in the neurologic patient, the major etiology being represented by E. coli; the risk of multidrug-resistance is not to be neglected, Klebsiella pn being the most common in such a situation.
