Prevalence, Bacterial Aetiology, Antibiotic Sensitivity And Predictors Of Urinary Tract Infection Among Children With Cerebral Palsy In Dodoma City, Tanzania

ABSTRACT

Background: Children with the cerebral palsy present with lower urinary tract dysfunctions and poor personal hygiene which increases their risk for UTI. As a common infectious cause of morbidity in childhood, UTI may lead to renal scarring, and subsequently hypertension and end-stage kidney disease if it is not appropriately diagnosed and promptly treated.

Objective: The study aimed to determine the prevalence, bacterial isolates, antibiotic sensitivity, and predictors of UTI among children with cerebral palsy.

Method: A six months cross-sectional study was conducted in Dodoma City from January to March 2020. Cerebral palsy children who met the inclusion criteria were recruited serially until the desired sample was met. The urine sample was collected using a transurethral catheter (6-12G) or a clean-catch method in two different containers, for urine culture and urine dipstick. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 21; Pearson Chi-square test and logistic regression test were used to reveal the independent predictor of UTI
