Abstract: Objective: To compare the efficacy of fosfomycin trometamol and cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of urinary tract infections during pregnancy.

Follow-up was carried out after 5 weeks.
Results: The treatment groups did not differ significantly in terms of demographics, clinical compliance rate and adverse effects. But the patients who were taking 5-day courses of cefuroxime axetil showed statistically significant higher cure rate as well as lower recurrence rate as compared to fosfomycin trometamol group.
Conclusion: Treatment with a single dose of fosfomycin trometamol and 5-day courses of cefuroxime axetil were found similar in terms of compliance rate and adverse effects but effectiveness in curing the UTI significantly higher higher among patients who were taking 5-day courses of cefuroxime axetil therapy.
