Abstract

In order to determine the prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa among hospitalised patients, 156
specimens were collected from hospitalized patients referring Baghdad, Iraq hospitals. Bacterial isolates
were identified using conventional biochemical tests and then identification was confirmed by the locating of
16SrRNA. Pseudomonas aeruginosa constitutes 30.05%. In conclusion, the attention should be paid toward
the infections of this opportunistic pathogen.
