|Abstract:||Otitis externa is a common condition in the tropics. Most of the data related to the condition have arisen from Western sources. Locally, the aetiology and the pathogens identified have not been systematically studied. A prospective study involving 107 patients was conducted. Otomycosis was frequently encountered. Coagulase negative Staphylococcus and Aspergillus niger were the most common bacteria and fungus cultured respectively. Gentamicin and polymyxin B were the most effective topical agents against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Self-cleaning of the ears was the most common predisposing factor.|
