The prevalent cause of urinary tract infections is uropathogenic Escherchia coli (UPEC), this study aimed to use polymerase chain reaction with genotyping markers; chuA, yjiA, and TspE4.C2 for grouping of Escherchia coli isolates obtained from cases of urinary tract infections of Al-Diwaniyah teaching hospital from March to August 2017, also to detect some virulence genes, fimbriae genes (fimH and papC), hemolysin(hlyA) and uropathogen specific protein(usp)gene in the particular strains. The results have been shown that all Escherchia coli isolates were backto the group B2, and the tested virulence genes were also detected in these isolates with different prevalence; fimH (100%), papC (78.57%), HlyA(100%), and usp(64.29%).From this study it has been concluded that uropathogenic Escherchia coli strains carried several virulence factors engaged the development of urinary tract infections.
