Bacterial infections are common in orthopaedic practice. A changing aetiological pattern of infections and the antibiotic susceptibility of bacteria has been reported due to widespread use of antibiotics and other factors (Rogers 1959). Sufficient stress has not been given to the role of anaerobic bacteria in orthopaedic infection. The present study was undertaken to find out the bacterial aetiology (both aerobic and anaerobic) in 150 consecutive cases with infections treated in the orthopaedic department of the willingdon Hospital, New Delhi.
