    Introduction: Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) have variable etiology and clinical presentation. Emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in organisms causing skin and soft tissue infections is posing a great therapeutic challenge. It is important to monitor the changing trends in bacterial infection and their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern to provide appropriate antimicrobial therapy for controlling infection, preventing morbidity and improve the quality of life. Aims: To determine the bacterial etiology and their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of soft tissue infections among patients attending the tertiary care set up. Materials and Methods: Pus samples received in the Department of Microbiology were included in the study. Isolation and identification were done as per standard laboratory protocol. Antimicrobial susceptibility test was done as per CLSI guideli.. Read More»
