Abstract:

The prevalence of antimicrobial drug resistant bacteria is increasing worldwide and represents a major thread in public health. We conducted a prospective and descriptive study during three months at the pediatric hospital Befelatanana Antananarivo on 2016. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of rectal carriage of Enterobacteriaceae beta lactam resistant on the children hospitalized during this period. During our study, one hundred and one patients were enrolled. The median age was 30 months. Main admitting diagnoses were respiratory (63.4%), digestive (16.8%), neurologic (13.9%) and kidney or cardiac (5.9%) disorders. Rectal swab yield growth of Enterobacteriaceae in 43 (42.6%) children of which: 18 (41.86%) E. cloacae, 10 (23.25%) E. coli, 8 (18.6%) K. pneumoniae, 7 (16.3%) P. mirabilis. Overall, 32.6% of all strains were 3CG-R and 14 (13.8%) children are colonized by a 3CG-R strain.
