A Study on UTI Prevalence of Neonates Younger than 8 Weeks Diagnosed with Prolonged Neonatal Jaundice
Out of 100 neonates diagnosed with prolonged neonatal jaundice, 27 had positive urine test (4 male and 27 female). Most neonates diagnosed with UTI had a full-term pregnancy, were born with normal delivery, and fed by breastfeeding. The most grown microorganism in urine samples was Escherichia coli. According to the results, 23% of asymptomatic neonates with prolonged jaundice were diagnosed with UTI. 73% of culture was negative. Out of 27% positive cases, 17% was reported with E.coli, 6% Klebsiella, and 4% microorganisms. According to the results, urine culture, which is among the routine diagnostic measures, is proposed for asymptomatic neonates diagnosed with prolonged neonatal jaundice.
