  • OBJECTIVES To investigate variability in colony morphology and antibiotic susceptibility in populations of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from sputa of patients with bronchiectasis without cystic fibrosis (CF) compared with P. aeruginosa isolated from patients with CF, and from other infections as controls. METHODS P. aeruginosa was cultured from 31 patients with non-CF bronchiectasis, 24 with CF, 7 ventilated patients and 9 skin swabs. Four colonies of each morphotype of P. aeruginosa were tested… CONTINUE READING
