Infections including urinary tract infections are among the most common bacterial driven disease in humans, both as community-acquired and healthcare-associated infections. As per World Health Organization (WHO), urinary tract infections are second largest infections to human and responsible for the massive amount of antibiotics consumption. Multidrug-resistant uropathogens are major health threats to both developing and developed nations. The clinical application of new generation antibiotics becomes a challenge with the emergence of MDR, XDR and PDR. In our study, we have profiled and reported major uropathogens in Bhopal city and their diversity. The Escherichia coli (more than 60%) remain a major uropathogen associated in UTIs cases in Bhopal. The other uropathogens reported in present study are Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus. The isolated and profiled uropathogen have shown increasing drug resistance with all major commercial antibiotics. Based on the pattern of antibiotic resistance multi-drug resistant uropathogens were classified as MDR, XDR, and PDR.
