Ninety eight E. coli strains isolated form sites other than intestinal and urinary tract were serotyped. The most common E.coli serotypes encountered were 017, 024, 068, 05, 020, 057, 0106, 0109 and 0132 in that order. Majority of vaginal infections were due to E. coli serotypes known as urinary pathogens, however none of these were observed in wound infections. Restricted group of E.coli serotypes was encounter which causes extra-intestinal and extra-urinary infections. Very high rate of antibiotic resistance (77.5%) was observed among these serotypes. Significance of these findings have been discussed.
