Abstract:

Klebsiella species are the common cause of community and hospital acquired infections worldwide. Klebsiella species are difficult to identify because of improper or insufficient method of detection and identification and one of the important aspects of Klebsiella associated infections is the emergence of multi-drug resistant strains particularly those involved in nosocomial diseases. This study was done to determine the isolation Identification and antibiotic sensitivity pattern of Klebsiella species. A total of 75 isolates of Klebsiella species are identified by standard microbiological techniques and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern was obtained by Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. Out of 75 isolates 64 (85.33%) was Klebsiella pneumoniae and 11 (14.66%) was Klebsiella oxytoca. Out of 75 isolates, maximum sensitivity was shown with polymyxin-B and colistin i.c 100% followed by meropenem 81.33%, imipenem 62.66%, piperacillin/tazobactam 61.33%, 56% sensitivity was shown by amikacin and gentamycin both, ofloxacin 46.66%, cefuroxime 45.33%, ciprofloxacin 42.66%, ampicillin 36%, cefepime 29.33% and minimum sensitivity shown by cefotaxime i.c 17.33%.
