Studying the Incidence of Pseudomonas Species as A Causative Agent of Otitis in Iraqi Patients


AbstractOtitis can affect the inner or outer parts of the ear. Sometimes it is difficult in a rapid response to the treatment. The condition is classified according to occurrence suddenly andfor a short time (acute) or repeatedly over a long period (chronic).The types of treatmentsand sustainability were depended on most cases on bacterial infections.Twenty three samples of Iraqi patients infected with otits were collected from Yarmook hospital. Theaural exudates screened to determine whether the infection was external or interior ear onMacConkey agar, and the negative Gram bacteria has been selected due to its higher connectivitywith human diseases.The growth colonies diagnosed by assay of biochemical reaction and we geneticallyconfirmed the availability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa by conventional PCR. The diversity of bacterialinfection showed the dominancy of Pseudomonas spp. (60%) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa(17%) in it compared to other bacteria such as Proteus Vulgaris (13%), Morganella morganii(4%) and Klebsiella spp. (4%).
