ABSTRACT

Introduction: Urinary tract infection (UTI)is among clinical problems in the neonatal period. Early and prompt diagnosis has important therapeutic implications. Clinical presentations are nonspecific and the severe disease may be fatal. There is scarce information in Tanzania regarding prevalence, aetiologies, antibiotic sensitivity and predictors of UTI among neonates. Objective: This study aimed at determining the prevalence, aetiology, antibiotics sensitivity and predictors of UTI among neonates with clinical sepsis who were admitted at Dodoma Regional Referral Hospital. Methodology: This was a cross-sectional analytical hospital-based study which included 152 neonates admitted with clinical sepsis. All neonates were investigated for full blood picture, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), urine for dipstick and urine culture.
