Abstract

Multi Drug Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa From Wild Hanuman Langur In India-A Case Report

I Samanta, S. N. Joardar, Palas Das, D. Ghosh, T. K. Sar, S. Taraphder

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram negative rod shaped bacterium, opportunistic pathogen. It is associated with the infection during low immunity status of the host. However in all warm blooded animal it is associated with the wound infection. A wild hanuman langur (Semnopithecus entellus) with compound fracture in the leg region was referred to the Clinics, Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences (WBUAFS), Kolkata, West Bengal, India by Forest Department, Government of West Bengal. The amputation of leg was performed under proper anaesthesia. A surgical wound with pus was detected during post operative care. The wound was not responding to the prescribed antibiotic and other supportive therapy. The pus sample collected in sterile vial was referred to Department of Veterinary Microbiology of the University for culture and antibiotic sensitivity. As per the staining property, colony characteristics and biochemical profile, the isolated bacterium was identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The isolate was found resistant to all of the studied antibiotics except enrofloxacin. The antibiogram result was communicated to the Clinics that effectively cured the surgical wound in the affected langur. Dosage of used enrofloxacin was 5 mg / kg body weight for 5 days.
