CHRONIC SUPPURATIVE OTITIS MEDIA: Study of Sensitivity to Antibiotics of Bacteria Commonly Found in Chronic Otitis Media

CHRONIC SUPPURATIVE OTITIS MEDIA: Study of Sensitivity to Antibiotics of Bacteria Commonly Found... Abstract THIS STUDY was primarily undertaken to determine the kinds of flora which are prevalent in the middle ear of patients suffering from chronic suppurative otitis media and also to study the sensitivity of organisms thus isolated to the antibiotics, as there is a paucity of literature on this subject. Numerous articles have been published on the flora of acute suppurative otitis media, but very few exist on the common organisms responsible for chronic suppurative otitis media. The rapid disappearance of acute suppurative otitis media from the clinics with the advent of antibiotics and the frequent presence of chronic suppurative otitis media and its poor response to the routine treatment are the factors which are responsible for the above undertaking.

Abstract

Abstract THIS STUDY was primarily undertaken to determine the kinds of flora which are prevalent in the middle ear of patients suffering from chronic suppurative otitis media and also to study the sensitivity of organisms thus isolated to the antibiotics, as there is a paucity of literature on this subject. Numerous articles have been published on the flora of acute suppurative otitis media, but very few exist on the common organisms responsible for chronic suppurative otitis media. The rapid disappearance of acute suppurative otitis media from the clinics with the advent of antibiotics and the frequent presence of chronic suppurative otitis media and its poor response to the routine treatment are the factors which are responsible for the above undertaking.
