To study the Bacteriological profile of bile of the patients undergoing Cholecystectomy and their antibiogram. This prospective study was carried out in the Department of Microbiology at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, Ranchi between 1st March, 2018 to 31st July, 2018, of patients belonging to age group ranging from seven years to seventy five years, undergoing cholecystectomy for cholelithiasis. The collected Bile samples were cultured and bacteria were isolated. These were identified and antibiogram was done for all isolates. Total 64 patients (12 males, 52 females) were included in this study. 11(17.19%) patients showed positive bile culture, in which Escherichia coli{n=04 (36.36%)} was the most common isolate followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae {n=03 (27.27%)}. Other organisms isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp. and CoNS. The remaining bile samples were sterile {n=53}. Out of 64 patients, 27 (42.19%) underwent open laparotomy and the remaining 37 laparoscopically. Most patients were of 51-60 years age group {n=22 (34.34%)} followed by 31-40 years {n=13 (20.31%)}. On antibiogram, E.coli (75%) and K. pneumoniae (66.6%) were sensitive to piperacillin/tazobactam and amikacin. P. aeruginosa showed sensitivity to piperacillin/tazobactam & ceftazidime. Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was sensitive to vancomycin and linezolid.
