(12) We isolated multiple NFGNB
and GPC during the study period.
Among the 11 cases who were treated earlier for the same condition of CSOM, Proteus mirabilis was the highest forming 45.4% followed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and NFGNB
all forming 18.1% each, Klebsiella species, Streptococcus pyogenes and Aspergillus niger formed 9.1% each.
Results: There were a total of 53 NFGNB
that were isolated by convenient sampling.
In this study 971 non fermentative gram negative bacterial (NFGNB
) isolates were obtained from all clinical samples.
Of the 5,437 blood specimens received during three months (November 2004 to January 2005) from various inpatient departments, 170 (13.7%) NFGNB
were isolated from 1235 positive blood culture specimens.
Among the NFGNB
, Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the commonest isolate 70.5% (24/34) followed by Acinetobacter baumannii 29.4% (10/34).
that were confirmed as causing VAP were evaluated.
did not demonstrate susceptibility to the commonly used antimicrobial agents.
isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa (32.43%), Acinetobacter species (21.62%), and NFGNB
other than P.
are known to account for 15% of all bacterial isolates from clinical microbiological laboratory.
The non-fermentative Gram negative bacilli (NFGNB
) are a group of aerobic, non-spore forming bacilli that either do not use carbohydrates as a source of energy or degrade them through metabolic pathways other than fermentation.
Acinetobacter (8.7%), Ecoli (5.2%), citro-bacter (4.1%), NFGNB
(2.9%) proteus (2.9%), CONS (1.16%), streptococcus pyogenes and Enterobacter (0.6% each).
