Studies have reported that the types of pathogen involved in Otitis media (OM) are dependent on geographical location and respiratory infections. This has resulted in contraction between studies on the prevalent causative pathogen. The prevalent causative bacterial of Otitis media (OM) was investigated among 16 children who presented positive at the Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) unit of University of Benin Teaching Hospital between 1st August and 31st October 2011, using standard microbiological methods. The results revealed that of the 16 positive samples collected, 37.5% yielded the growth of Klebsiella aerogenes; 25.0% Proteus spp; 18.75% Pseudomonas aeruginosa; 12.5% Staphlococcus aureus, and 6.25% Escherichia coli. Base on this results, the causative bacterial of OM can varies and hence, the needs for a microbiological screening before treatment with antibiotic to minimise multi-drug resistant.
