This study investigate uropathogenic species isolation and characterization in the population of Mansehra. The different physical chemical and microscopic properties of urine samples were examined. Isolated uropathogen organism were selected for antibiotic suceptibility and resistance pattren. Thirty seven clinics were visited to collect the data regarding the UTI patients among these nine Bacterial species were isolated from 32 urine samples which included bacterial species Escherichia coli, Enterrobacter spp. and Staphylococcus aureus. Different biochemicals tests were used for identification. The confirmed isolated bacteria were also tested against selected antibiotics for sensitivity and resistant strains. The result of present investigation revealed that UTI is most common infection among local population of Mansehra. The efficacy of antibiotics calculated and found that Ciprofloxacine, Chloramphenicol, Norfloxacine were sensitive against all isolated bacteria while Cefixime, Cefipime, Linkomycine, Sulfamethaxazole trimethoprim and Nitrofurantion  were resistant while Tobramycine and  Pipperacilline Tazobactum were intermediate. The efficacy of some antibiotics is also questionable because the efficacy of these antibiotics were found resistant and it was also found that common strains  of UTI causing Bacteria were resistant against prescribed antibiotics in District Mansehra.
