Introduction: Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is one of the most common illness of middle ear which required medical attention. CSOM is higher in India because of poor socioeconomic standards, poor nutrition and lack of health education. Its effects both sexes and all age group. Osteitis or granulation tissue in chronic otitis media destroys the bone and help infection to penetrate deeper. Aim: To assess the bacteriological etiology of CSOM and observe the antibiotics sensitivity pattern of isolated microorganisms. Material and methods: The study was conducted in bacteriology section of microbiology department at Teerthanker Mahaveer Hospital & Research Centre Moradabad (U.P.) Samples were processed and identified by conventional methods and drug susceptibility testing was done by Kirby-Bauerâ€™s disc diffusion method according to CLSI guidelines. Result: A total 100 patient clinically diagnosed with CSOM attending the ENT Unit of TMMC & RC. Out of 100 samples 64 were positive for CSOM while 36 were negative. The bacteria associated with CSOM include Pseudomonas spp, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus spp, E. coli and Klebsiella spp. Conclusion: The study of microorganisms and the current drug sensitivity pattern helps the clinician to choose an appropriate treatment for patients with chronic suppurative otitis media.
Keywords: CSOM, Aerobic bacteria, Culture and sensitivity.
