One hundred and forty eight urinary isolated of catalase positive, coagulase negative gram- positive cocci from out-patients and inpatients of both sexes were studied to assess the incidence of urinary tract infection due to S. saprophyticus. Fifty nine (39.86%) were identified as S. saprophyticus on the basis of pigment production, mannitol fermentation and resistance to Novobiocin and nalidixic acid. Although more common among females between 20 and 40 years of age, S. saprophyticus bacteriuria was present in males (12) and children (7) also. Patients with S. saprophuticus bacteriuria also included 25 (42.37%) hospitalised cases. Symptoms of lower urinary tract infection were present in most cases and obstructive uropathy in all male children below the age of 10 years.
