Abstract:

The distribution of various pathogens causing wound infection was evaluated in Othakkalmandapam, Coimbatore district, Tamilnadu. A total of 150 cases were studied. Out of this 21 positive wound swab specimens were collected and cultured, of which all samples showed bacterial growth. Seven different species of bacteria were isolated. E.coli (45%) and Staphylococcus aureus (53.8%) were the most common organisms followed by Staphylococcus epidermidis (28.5%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (23.8%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (14.28%), and Proteus mirabilis (9.52%). The antibiotic susceptibility test of the bacterial isolate was performed by Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method. Majority of the bacterial isolates showed wide resistance to the antimicrobials employed. High rate of multiple antibiotic resistances was observed in both Gram positive and Gram negative bacterial species recovered.
