Sumario: Urinary tract infections are frequent cause of consultation in primay care, so that successful treatment involves a decrease in morbidity and sometimes mortality from this disease. The primary care program Programa de Atención Integral de Salud convenio UCR-CCSS (PAIS) is not an exception as there are considerable number of visits for this condition and the female is most affected. We obtained 88 cases of urinary tract infection whit positive urine cultures from January 2009 to December 2010, six were men and 82 women, the average age was 52.4 years with a standard deviation 21.74 years. Escherichia coli corresponds to 77.3% of the cases, with a resistance of 47.1% to Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, Nitrofurantoin is still a good therapeutic option for empirical treatment of UTIs.
