ABSTRACT

 
Objective: Detection of antibiotic sensitivity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from
different clinical specimens in Kirkuk, Iraq.
Material and Methods: The present study included (3138) samples collected from different
clinical specimens from outpatients and inpatients of both sexes with different ages who
were attended Azadi Teaching Hospital/ Kirkuk during the period from October/2007 until
May/ 2013.
Results: From a total of 3138 Specimens, 1485 gave positive cultured and 1653 Specimens
showed no bacterial growth, 319/3138 (10.17%) isolates were identified as P. aeruginosa.
These isolates were identified according to morphological, cultural and biochemical
characteristics. Wound and ear swab were important source for P. aeruginosa and isolated
more frequently in inpatients than outpatients. The rate of isolation in females 169/319
(52.97%) was higher than males 150/319 (47.01%). Antibiotic susceptibility test of these
isolates was performed, and the results showed that all Pseudomonas isolates (100%) were
resistant to ampicillin, cephradin and trimoxazole, followed by gentamycin (97.3%),
Amoxicillin (97.3), cephalexin (92.3%), neomycin (91.4%), nalidixic acid (89%),
nitrofurantoin (87.5%), tobramycin (87.5%) and ciprofloxacin (84%), and the resistance to

amikacin was (75%).

Conclusions: P. aeruginosa is multiresistant isolated in a high frequency from wound
swabs followed by ear swabs.
