coli in our study presented with good sensitivity against cefoperazone-sulbactam, imipenem, piperacillin-tazobactam and amikacin.
Based on our antibiotic susceptibility data, we suggest that piperacillin-tazobactam and meropenem are the most effective against Gram-negative bacilli and clindamycin, vancomycin and linezolid are effective against Gram-positive organisms.
The patient responded very well to piperacillin-tazobactam and gentamicin with significant reduction in swelling and decrease in number of nodules in a month time(Figure 4 and 5).
The bacterium was susceptible to clindamycin, cefoxitin, meropenem, metronidazole, piperacillin-tazobactam, vancomycin, and teicoplanin and intermediate to penicillin (Table 1).
The number of isolates susceptible to piperacillin-tazobactam was higher than that for ceftazidime and cefoperazone-sulbactam and the susceptibility to piperacillin-tazobactam was maintained throughout the study period.
pneumoniae was resistant to piperacillin-tazobactam, while 5% was resistant to meropenem.
In the antibiotic sensitivity test, the isolate was found to be resistant to ampicillin, cefazolin, cefoxitin and sensitive to ampicillin-sulbactam, amikacin, aztreonam, ceftriaxon, ceftazidim, cefepime, ciprofloxacin, imipenem, meropenem and piperacillin-tazobactam.
Acidic media caused increased piperacillin-tazobactam MICs against 4 isolates and decreased MICs against 3 isolates by >4-fold (Table 2).
Discontinued medications at the time included senna-docusate; recently added medications included acyclovir, potassium phosphate, promethazine, vancomycin, and piperacillin-tazobactam.
Bacteremia was suspected based on the patient's febrile neutropenia; therefore, piperacillin-tazobactam and vancoymcin were administered to the patient while in the Emergency Department.
Overall, the susceptibility pattern of Gram negative CSF isolates to various antimicrobial agents exhibited that all the isolates were 100% susceptible to meropenem and to pristinamycin (recommended only for Neisseria among Gram negative bacteria), followed by piperacillin-tazobactam (94.
