Abstract

Changing patterns of antibiotic sensitivity of V cholerae is a major concern as Multiple-Antibiotic-Resistant (MAR) V. cholerae isolates are being reported from various parts of the world. The study was conducted to analyze the prevalence and antibiotic resistance pattern of V cholerae 01. Samples were processed according to the standard guidelines. Sporadic outbreaks occurred in June 2004 and March 2010. Antibiotic resistance was seen in the strains isolated. A large number of cholera epidemics have been associated with MAR strains of V cholerae. This makes it imperative that all isolates be constantly subjected to susceptibi lity testing and resistance patterns to each antibiotic be monitored.
