Abstract:

Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) is one of the most common diseases of the ear of all age groups. It is a destructive and persistent disease with irreversible outcome and a major health problem in developing nations with low socio-economic civilization because of malnutrition, overcrowding, poor hygiene and inadequate health care and laboratory facilities. Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria are the important causative agents of CSOM. Hence this study was conducted to identify the common bacterial isolates from patients diagnosed with CSOM at tertiary center in central India and to determine the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of aerobic bacterial isolates. A total of 157 patients were enrolled and processed for isolation of bacterial isolates using standard microbiological tests with sensitivity pattern. SPSS software 20 and MS Microsoft Excel 2007 was used for statistical analysis. Bacterial cultures were positive in 133 cases out of which 126(94.75%) were aerobes and 7(5.25%) were anaerobes. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of the aerobic bacterial isolates was performed by disc diffusion method according to clinical laboratory standards institute guidelines. The aerobic bacterial isolates were mostly sensitive to commonly used antimicrobials like 3rd generation cephalosporins, Amoxycillin + Clavulanic acid, Amikacin and Ciprofloxacin. Evidence based judicial treatment and appropriate use of antimicrobials will ensure & reduce the resistance to antimicrobials and the cost of treatment.
