    ABSTRACT: Many disease conditions including Staphylococcal infections are becoming increasingly difficult to treat in South Africa due to the surge of vancomycin-oxacillin resistant strains. How widespread this phenomenon is in commensal isolates in the Nkonkobe municipality in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa is not known, and considering the high level of immunocompromised individuals in the province, this study couldn't have come at a better time.

    ABSTRACT: Aim: The aim of this study is to identify the common urinary problems in Indian females, their etiology and symtoma-tology. Material and Methods: This is a prospective epidemiological study of 703 female patients with urinary prob-lems, who attended the surgery and gynecology OPD (outpatient department) in our institution which is a tertiary refer-ral centre in central India. Result: 58% of patients were middle age (31 -55) yrs. Burning micturition was the most common urinary complain (607 patients) followed by increased frequency of micturition (309 patients). 68% females took months or even years to take first consultation after appearance of their symptoms. 14% percent of patients suf-fered from urinary incontinence (stress, urge and mixed). 86% of women had education level below fifth standard. About 58% of females gave birth to 3 or more than 3 issues. About 254 (36%) patients had one or more unassisted de-livery at home. Thirty eight percent of patients still remained undiagnosed. More than 50% of undiagnosed females lie in middle age group. 68% of undiagnosed patients took consultation months or years after their symptoms first appeared. Irritative symptoms are the most common presenting complains of these undiagnosed patients followed by pain in ab-domen. Around 60% of patients had history of either mental distress, domestic violence or any neuropschiatric disease. This study only gives us an idea about the urinary problems faced by females and their probable causative factors. Many more studies need to be done involving multidisciplinary approach in order to benefit this section of our society.
