Dr. Vikas Dhillon*, Ashok Kumar, Sanchit Menon, Bhawna Sharma, Prerna Aggarwal and Aarushi Chaudhary

ABSTRACT

Chronic suppurative otitis media is defined as chronic inflammation of the middle ear and mastoid cavity which present with recurrent ear discharge or otorrhoea through a tympanic membrane perforation.[1] Due to perforated tympanic membrane microorganisms can gain entry into the middle ear via external auditory canal.[2] Most common organism found associated with CSOM are Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Aspergillus and Candida.[3] Whatever may be the type or aetiology of CSOM, increased and irrational use of wide spectrum antibiotics, has resulted in development of resistance among bacterial isolates and change in microbial flora.[4] Therefore, antibiotic sensitivity pattern is very important for clinicians to plan a general outline of treatment.
