Introduction: Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) has a multifactorial etiology, which follows acute ear infection and leads to deafness. The present study was conducted to know the etiology and antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the isolates. Methods: Ear swabs were collected and processed as per standard procedures. Results: The organisms isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase negative Staphylococci, Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., and Serratia and they showed variable susceptibility patterns. The fungi isolated were Candida spp. and Aspergillus niger. Conclusion: Proper diagnosis and selection of antibiotics reduce the damage and toxicity of the drugs.
