Study the Wide Variety of Prospective Bacterial Pathogens in Infections of Burns and Wound Patients in Baghdad City.

Ashwak Jasim Kzar, Mohamed M. Sehree


The purpose of the study is to analyze the range of potential pathogenic bacteria that could infect skin-related burns and wounds in the governorate of Baghdad. In total, fifty wound swabs and burn samples were gathered for this study, examined under a microscope, and cultured on Blood, MacConkey, and Chocolate Agar media. Additionally, the isolates' antibiotic sensitivity was assessed using the disc diffusion test, the Vitek method, and biochemical testing. Fifty samples of burns and wounds were collected from hospitalized patients and were divided into two groups (twenty-eight men and twenty-two women) of all ages who were examined in the dermatology department at Al-Imam Al-Kazemi Medical City. The most microorganisms were Staphylococcus sp prevalent bacterial specie identified; Pseudomonas aeruginosa has also been isolated in a little number. The most isolated bacteria were resistance to the most selected antibiotics. Shigella sonnei and Klebsiella species were the most resistance strains, While Staphylococcus aureus and Staphyococcus epidermidis were susceptible to some antibioticsTracycline and fusidic acid had the highest resistance rate among the isolated bacterial species, followed by oxacillin, β-lactamase, and gentamicin. Finally we conclude from the current study that most styles of bacteria compelling which burns and wound infections are Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, and most of them are multi-resistant to commonly used antimicrobial agents. This research furnishes the road for additional studies into in-depth metagenomics analysis and interactions between hosts and pathogens.
