Multidrug resistant Salmonella typhi in Rourkela, Orissa.
Indian J Pathol Microbiol. 2000 Apr; 43(2):135-8.IJ

Abstract

Out of 5410 blood samples 715 samples were found positive for Salmonella typhi. Enteric fever was prevalent for last three years in Rourkela. In last two years, a number of multidrug resistant strains of Salmonella typhi was isolated which constituted almost 16.1% of the total isolates. In this study, chloramphenicol sensitivity was found quite high (86.5%) and ceftriaxone showed 100% sensitivity. Resistance to ciprofloxacin was found 2.5% which due to direct consequence of indiscriminate use of antibiotics, either singly or in combination.
