Abstract: Introduction: Enterobacteriaceae remain a family which include a bacterial species amongst the most frequently associated to urinary tract infections. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and the antibiotic resistance profile of Enterobacteria isolated from urinary tract infections. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was carried out from January 20th to July 20th, 2020 at China-Guinea Friendship Hospital of Kipé in Conakry. One hundred and sixty-one patients were studies. Results: Female sex was predominant (62.73%) and the sex ratio (M/F) was 0.59. The most important age group was 51 years and over (62.25%). Fifteen species were identified. The most frequently isolated species were Klebsiella pneumonia (32.30%), Escherichia coli (27.95%), Enterobacter cloacae (9.94%) and Serratia odorifera (5.59%). Conclusion: The majority of these strains were resistant to tetracycline, Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole, and cephalosporins. On the other hand, the carbapenems (imipenem and meropenem) were active on the majority of strains.
