D Keskin, S Kirac, M Yarar
Objective: To assignation the grade of resistance to the widely used antibiotics in clinical isolates of Proteus mirabilis60 isolates were collected from special hospital in Denizli and recorded at specimens. Method: Antibiotic resistance was determined by agar disc diffusion method using Mueller-Hinton agar according to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute recommendations. Results: All isolates were defined as Trimetroprim/ Sulfamethaxol and Nitrafurantoinresistant. The resistance rates for Meropenem, Cefixime, and Ceftazidime were 95%, 90% and 87% respectively. 53 isolates (88%) isolates showed Multiple Antibiotic Resistance three to thirteen antibiotics. Conclusion: Resistance of Proteus to antibiotics was due to selection for drug resistance has been associated with an increased and inappropriate use of antibiotics. There is an irregular use of antimicrobial agents in Turkey.
