The dorminant uropathogen detected or isolated were Staphylococcus aureus (14.0%), Chlamydia trachomatis (11.4%), Escherichia coli (4.3%), Micoplasma genitalium (4.0%) Klebsielli aerogenes (4.0%). Others were Staphylococus saprophyticus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Protein mirabilis with 2.7% each respectively, Protein vulgaria treponema pallidum (2.1%), Schistosoma haematobium (0.9%) Wulchereria Bancrofti (0.3%), Human immune virus (2.7%).
