Ten Escherichia coli isolates from cases of significant bacteriuria were examined for presence of fimbrial adhesions by uroepithelial cell adhesion assay and electron microscopy (EM). Nine strains which demonstrated adhesin activity by UroEp adhesion assay (UEpAdh) exhibited fimbriae by EM also. The results were fount to be in complete agreement with each other. No relationship could be established between other virulence factors like hernolysin production, colicinogeny, aerobactin production and dulcitol fermentation and the presence of fimbriae.
