Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine the causative agents of community-acquired lower urinary tract infections (CALUTIs) in primary care. We also aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial susceptibility rates of urinary Escherichia coli isolates to various oral antibiotics and to assist primary care physicians with antibiotic selection.
