Abstract :

A small critical review that affirms the omnipresence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in burn infections worldwide that area localised on the strains screened and on their susceptibility to the antibiotics that determines the treatment regime. Thus, treatment of burn wound infections was found to be efficient when localised regionally and locally. This review discusses the emergence of ESBL resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains that are resistance to even vancomycin and cephalosporins (expect cephamycins, cefoxitin and cefotetan) and the evolving research on novel molecular drug, nubiotics. This emphasizes the need for the judicious and cautious use of the prevalent drugs at least until the release of new generation of drugs.
