Abstract:

A total of 215 greenish, pigmented consecutive non-duplicate Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from clinical specimens werwe examined. The  age of the patients was 2-75 years, comprised of 164 (76. 68%) males and 51 (23. 72%) females. High prevalence of pseudomonal infections occurred more in above 60years (33. 95%), followed by 40-49(18%) and 50-59(17. 67%) 20-29(12. 09%);30-39(10. 23%)10-19(06. 51%) least in less than 10years(0. 93%). Majority of the isolates were recovered from wounds specimens, 54(25. 12%). and urine 54(25. 12&) next f0llows sputom34 (15. 81%), endotrachial tube 32 (14. 88%), pus 17(07. 91%) cathetertip14 (06. 51%), body fluids 10(04. 65%) Overall antibiotic susceptibility pattern showed that demonstrated highest sensitivity of perercillin plus tazobactam 176(81. 86%), followed  by dorepenen 172 (80%)  imepenem, 170(79. 07%) polymixin-B, 52 [70. 70%]. Amikacin 140(68. 12%), ciprofloxacin 135 (62. 75%. Highest resistance seen in amoxicillin 203(94. 42%) followed by cefexime 170 (79. 07%), cotrimoxazole130 (60. 47%) cefipime 125 (58. 14%)  Majority of the isolates exhibited multidrug resistance pattern. In conclusion, the multidrug resistance pattern of  P. aeruginosa isolates observed in this study posed a dire clinical consequence, especially in patients management with pseudomonal infections and infections control approach in hospital environment due to rapid dissemination of the strains.
