Abstract :

Abscess is an accumulation of pus in tissue and it is caused by suppuration deep within a tissue, an organ or confined space. Though the bacterial profile from pus samples remains almost similar in various studies, the irrational use of antibiotics has lead to the emergence of various drug resistant pathogens. In this retrospective study we have taken 290 aspirated pus samples for aerobic culture and sensitivity and found 23 different aerobic bacterial isolates. Most common isolate was Escherichia coli (n-12) followed by Staphylococcus aureus (n-8) and one each was Acinetobacter spp., Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus spp. Sensitivity of E coli was found to be low for ciprofloxacin, amoxycillin+clavulanic acid, ceftazidime, cefepime and aztreonam; while sensitivity was high for amikacin, imipenem, colistin and tigecycline. Staphylococcus aureus was highly sensitive to most of the antibiotics that had been put for sensitivity testing. A continuous inspection should be carried out to monitor the antimicrobial susceptibility of bacterial isolates from aspirated pus samples to choose appropriate antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of infections.
