Antibiotic susceptibility and antibiotic resistance according to the data of Kyiv Municipal Children’s Clinical Infectious Diseases Hospital from 2012 to 2016

O.V. Vygovska, E.A. Grechuha, O.I. Tkachuk


The state of antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial infectious agents was analyzed in the period from 2012 to 2016 in 498 patients. The bulk — children aged 0 months to 18 years. The main material for the study was a smear from the pharynx (41 %), feces (17 %), a nasal swab (13 %), urine (10 %). The main pathogens were identified: Staphylococcus aureus (66 %), Streptococcus pneumoniae (1 %), Klebsiella pneumoniae (5 %), Streptococcus pyogenes (15 %). The antibiotic susceptibility of S.aureus to antibacterial agents of the cephalosporin group, fluoroquinolones, carbopenems; Str.pyogenes — to the antibacterial agents of the cephalosporin group has been detected in biological isolates of specimens from children with various infectious pathologies.
