Characterization of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from the chronic wound infection in camel

Author(s): Kritika Dhial, BN Shringi, Amit Pandey and Shikha Bishnoi
Abstract: A case of chronic wound infection in camel was presented in the Veterinary clinics, RAJUVAS, Bikaner. The wound swab sample was cultured on BHI agar. Isolated bacteria was confirmed as Pseudomonas aeruginosa through cultural, biochemical and genotypic characterization. In ABST, bacteria were subjected to 15 antibiotics out of which bacteria was found resistant to 7, sensitive to 6 and moderately sensitive to 2. ABST result revealed that bacteria exhibit Multiple Drug Resistance (MDR). MAR-Index value was 0.46 (>0.2) which indicate high risk potential source of spread of MDR strains. Pathogenicity of bacteria was characterized by Analysing Haemolytic efficiency, antibiogram and presence of Quorum sensing genes. This report is an example of rising infection cases due to MDR strains which results in dodging antibacterial effects of many antibiotics. Eventually it results in difficulty to treat a patient and complicate the efforts to lower down the resistance.
