Abstract:

Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) is a common infectious chronic ear disease in India. The present study was aimed to identify bacterial isolates associated with CSOM and their Antibiogram in patients attending Microbiology department of Nalanda Medical College & Hospital, Patna. Samples were taken from 150 patients (both male and female) in all age groups during the period of Dec 2015 to March 2017 suffering from CSOM and having active ear discharge. Total 103 patients were found to be culture positive from the 150 known case of CSOM. Their Gram staining, direct microscopy, Culture sensitivity, and Biochemical tests were carried out to identify the organisms and to know their sensitivity pattern. Drug susceptibility testing was conducted using a modified Kirby Bauer disk diffusion method. The most common causal organisms isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa 35(33.98%) followed by Staphylococcus aureus 29 (28.15%). The antimicrobial profile of the major isolates i.e. Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staph. aureus revealed maximum sensitivity to Piperacillin / Tazobactum against 100% and 93.1% isolates respectively. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most common isolate followed by Staphylococcus aureus. Both of these are sensitive to Piperacillin / Tazobactum. The study of microbial pattern and their antibiotic sensitivity determines the prevalent bacterial organisms causing CSOM in local area and to start empirical and more targeted treatment of otitis media and its complications for successful outcome, thus to prevent the emergence of resistant strains.
