This study was undertaken, chiefly, for the purpose of characterizing biochemically a random sample of non fermentative bacilli obtained from local hospitals and determining the prevalence of Ps. aeruginosa among them. A second objective was to compare the antibiogram patterns obtained in this study with those reported by other investigators, and thirdly to establish a baseline for future comparative studies.
