Abstract:

This study included isolation and identification of Staphylococcus aureus from folliculitis patients then detection the bacterial ability for biofilm formation, because biofilm play very important role in pathogenicity and antibiotics resistance of bacteria. Fifty specimens have been collected, 47 (94%) specimens collected by swabbing gave positive culture and 3 (6%) specimens gave negative culture. After Gram 44 (93.6%) isolates were Gram positive bacteria and 3 (6.4%) isolates were Gram negative bacteria when identification of positive and negative bacterial isolates has been completed the results showed that 2 (4.3%) isolates were Pseudomonas sp., 1 (2.1%) isolates was Klebsiiela sp. and 44 (93.6%) isolates were S. aureus. Thirty nine (88.6%) isolates of S. aureus produced biofilm and only 5 (11.4%) isolates not produced biofilm although isolates obtained from folliculitis patients and reflected resistance to antibiotics. Ciprofloxacin reflect high efficiency against S. aureus with inhibition zone (26mm) while ethanolic extract of locally garlic which showed high inhibitive ability against S. aureus with inhibition zone (28mm).
