Abstract

Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) are important pathogens due to high morbidity and mortality the cause. As the use of different antibiotics increase in the treatment of gram-negative infections we evaluated the pattern of infection and bacterial susceptibility of GNB in Shahidbeheshti Hospital. In our 205 samples 64.4 were E. coli, 15.1 Klebsiella, 9.7 Pseudomonas, 4.9 Enterobacter, 3.4 Citrobacter, 1 Proteus and 1 Acintobacter and 0.5 Brucella. There were 21.4 resistance rate for ciprofloxacin 14.6 for nitrofurantoin. The resistance rate of ceftriaxone was 49.7. High rates of GNB resistance is an exaggerating threat, especially when we look at low rates of previous years studies. © IDOSI Publications, 2014.
