Screening for bacteria agents responsible for otitis media and their antibiogram


Oyeleke, S. B.

30 samples (male and female) of ear swab were collected from patients at general hospital Minna for examination of bacteria that causes otitis media. 26 samples were positive for these organisms. The organisms isolated include Pseudomonas sp., Kleblesella sp., Proteus sp., Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Pseudomonas sp., (54%) had the highest incidence of occurrence followed by Kleblesella sp. (19%) and Proteus sp (15%) while the least was S. aureus (4%). The organisms’ sensitivity test reveals that they were highly sensitive to gentamycin. The bacteria responsible for otitis media are pathogenic, therefore effort should be made to reduce the factors militating its occurrence of these pathogens in the community
