In group 3 (n=13), injection Ceftizoxime (Zoctim (a)) @ 10 mg/kg b.
Swab samples were pre-enriched in Mueller Hinton broth, followed by selective enrichment with ceftizoxime and aztreonam and culture on Brilliance MRSA agar (Oxoid, Badhoevedorp, the Netherlands) (18).
The isolates showed highest resistance against penicillin followed by carbenicillin ampicillin tetracycline erythromycin ceftizoxime kanamycin co-trimoxazole piperacillin amoxicillin amikacin streptomycin nalidixic acid gentamicin chloramphenicol cephalothin and ceftriaxone.
Pus culture was positive for various organisms like Enterococcus Fecalis 15 cases (sensitive to Amikacin, Ceftizoxime, Cefotaxime and Ciprofloxacin), Acinetobacter 13 cases (sensitive to Amikacin, cefotaxime, ampicillin-Sulbactam), Staphylococcus Aureus 10 cases (sensitive to vancomycin, Ciprofloxacin, Nafcillin, Oxacillin), Streptococcus Pyogenes 12 cases (sensitive to Clindamycin, Erythromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Ceftazidime), Proteus one case (sensitive to Ciprofloxacin, Gentamicin, Ceftazidime, Ampicillin-Sulbactam, Amikacin) and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa 3 cases (sensitive to Ciprofloxacin, Gentamicin, Ceftazidime, Amikacin, Ceftriaxone).
Ceftizoxime and clindamycin combination (two weeks) were switched to TMP/SXT plus imipenem (one month) for treating one of those fastidious microorganisms including Rhodococcus, Nocardia, Actinomyces, Peptococcus, etc.
The organism was reported to be sensitive to amoxycillin-clavulanic acid, ticarcillin, piperacillin, cefpodoxime, cefotaxime, ceftizoxime, aztreonam, meropenem, tetracycline, and tigecycline and resistant to nalidixic caid, norfloxacin, and moxifloxacin.
