Objectives: Community onset urinary tract infections (COUTIs) drew attention recently owing to their increased prevalence and associations with resistant pathogens. The study is aimed at investigating the etiology of COUTIs as well as prevalence and the related risk factors of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) in COUTIs in China.
