Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media is a chronic inflammation of middle ear presents with recurrent otorrhoea through a tympanic perforation, usually occurs after upper respiratory viral infections followed by invasion of pyogenic organisms. Our prospective study, conducted over a period of 10 months, includes ear discharge from 100 patients with chronic suppurative ottis media. Discharge collected in sterile swabs were sent immediately to microbiology laboratory and processed. Bacterial isolates were identified by standard methods and antibiotic susceptibility testing was done. Staphylococcus was the predominant organism followed by Pseudomonas sps., and Escherichia Coli. Most of the organisms were sensitive to Cefotaxime followed by Amikacin. The aim of the study on aerobic microbes and their anti-biogram pattern was to prepare a protocol for empirical antibiotic therapy based on the study to shorten the period of infection.
