Abstract: The predominant organism was Pseudomonas aeruginosa (24/53, 45.28%). The susceptibility of these isolates to fluoroquinolones (91.67%) and aminoglycosides (95.83%) was good. Seven isolates were Enterobacterales. Susceptibility to ampicillin, amoxiclav, cefuroxime and macrolides (each 14.29%) was alarming. Ceftriaxone and cotrimoxazole showed susceptibility of 57.14%. Fluoroquinolone susceptibility (71.43%) was also poor. Antimicrobial therapy based on microbiological evidence is essential for the management in the face of high antibiotic resistance.
