ABSTRACT

Introduction: Otitis media has a multifactorial etiology, which follows acute ear infection and leads to deafness. The present study was conducted to isolate and characterize the microbial flora from ear swabs and antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the isolates. Methods: 45 Ear swabs were collected and processed as per standard procedures. Results: The organisms isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., and Serratia and they showed variable susceptibility patterns. The fungi isolated were Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger. Conclusion: Based on the present work the ear infection is mainly associated with Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeroginosa in higher amount. The result obtained by antibiotic sensitivity testing conclude that the topical ear drop such as Ciprofloxacin, Gentamycin & Chloramphenicol is found to be effective for isolates.
