Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been associated with various nosocomial and community acquired infections. The aim of this study is to ascertain the current antimicrobial resistance pattern of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in this environment as this will be of clinical relevance in the management of these infections. The study was conducted over a period of two years in a 750 bedded tertiary care hospital. A total of 3219 samples were collected out of which 570 strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were isolated and the rate of isolation was found to be 17.70%. Imipenem, piperacillin-tazobactum and tobramycin were found to most sensitive.
