Bacteriological Profile, Serology and Antibiotic Sensitivity Pattern of Micro-organisms from Community Acquired Pneumonia

Abstract

Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) remains a common yet serious illness with significant morbidity and mortality despite the availability of potent new antibiotics and other effective therapies. Management of pneumonia remains empiric and challenging because the precise etiology is unknown. Despite progress in diagnostic techniques and laboratory tests, it takes atleast a few days to identify causative micro-organisms in blood or sputum samples and etiology of about half of all patients with CAP remains uncertain (1).
