Abstract:

Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone caused by bacteria. Osteomyelitis is one of the most severe complications that can arise following trauma or surgical treatment of bone. The present study was conducted in the Department of Microbiology, Government Medical College, Thrissur from April 2010 to March 2011and the objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of different aerobic bacteria causing post-traumatic osteomyelitis and  the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the isolates. A total of 78 samples were received out ofwhich , 53 were positive  by culture, while 25 were sterile. Out of the 55 positive samples 7 were polymicrobial and 48 had only single isolate, Staphylococcus aureus was the most commonly isolated pathogen. 33(65.4%) and39.4% of Staphylococcus aureus were MRSA. Other important organisms isolated included Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E.coli , Klebsiellapneumonia and  Proteus mirabilis . All the isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were resistant to Penicillin. However, Vancomycin resistance was not detected in any of the patient with MRSA. All Gram negative bacilli were sensitive to Piperacillin-Tazobactam and Imipenem.
