Abstract:

Two hundred specimens (100 males and 100 females) were included, through (100) swabs of otitis media and (100) swabs of tonsillitis. These swabs had obtained from patients consulted to different hospitals of Baghdad city during the period from 10 March 2017 to 12 May 2017. There were 27(27%) positive isolates for Strep. pyogenes, which obtained from patients with age ranged from less than6 years, who suffered from tonsillitis and ear infections. The phenotypic characterizations of twenty-seven isolates (13.5%) of Strep. pyogenes, which had obtained, showed characteristic colony morphology when cultured on different agar plates, microscopic appearance and biochemical tests. Twenty-seven (27) isolates of Strep. pyogenes were tested for their antibiotics susceptibility against eleven antibiotics by using Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion methods on Muller Hinton agar. Results of antibiotic susceptibility had showed different levels of sensitivity and resistance.


Keywords: Tonsillitis, Otitis media, Strep. pyogenes, Antibiotic susceptibility profile.
