A comparative study was carried out on the prevalence and antibiotic sensitivity of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus isolates from 100 mid-stream urine samples of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) patients. Escherichia coli gave isolation rates of 66.7% in female and 62.5% in male against Staphylococcus aureus 28.7% male and 37% female respectively. The antibiotic susceptibility test carried out on the isolates gave a results that reflect the current knowledge on their reactions to commonly prescribed antibiotics while the higher prevalence of Escherichia coli confirms its frequent occurrence in UTI, the detection of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli relatively considerable resistance to oxacillin in the this study indicated the inherent ability of the organisms to adapt.
