Abstract:

Blood  stream  infections (BSI)  are  an  important  cause  of  morbidity  and  mortality  all  over  the  world.  Bacteremia  is  an  important  and  common  cause  of  septicaemia  in  all  age  groups.  The  incidence  of  bacteremia  and  the  causative  bacteria  and  their  antimicrobial  susceptibility  pattern  varies  with  time  and  place.  The  present  work  is  a  retrospective  study  of  bacteria  isolated  from  blood  cultures  of  patients  with  suspected  bacteremia  and  their  antimicrobial  susceptibility  pattern.  Escherichia  coli  was  the  most  common  isolate  among  gram  negative  bacilli (GNB)  followed  by   Staphylococcus  aureus  among  gram  positive  cocci (GPC).  The  incidence  was  high  among  male  children  in  the  age  group  of  1-10  years.  Imipenem  was  the  most  effective  drug  against  Escherichia  coli  and  Vancomycin  against  Staphylococcus  aureus.
