Summary Pathogens that carry antibacterial resistant genes represent a threat for failure of antibiotic therapy and are associated with high mortality, morbidity and expenses. In Bangladesh, although quinolone resistance in clinical infections has been reported, environmental influence to this resistance is poorly known. Thus, to examine the existence of quinolone resistant bacterial strains in surface water in Dhaka, the study was conducted during June 2012 to January 2014. Surface water samples from Dhaka city were screened and isolated quinolone resistant Pseudomonas putida, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Molecular and genetic analysis identified the resistant determinants in these isolates. The study suggests that potential role of water for the dissemination and transmission of resistant genes among microorganisms causing human and animal infections in Bangladesh.
