The pattern and behavior of organisms causing ostcomyelitis are constantly changing under the selective pressure of newer antibiotics. As a result the wonder drugs of the fifties have been relegated to a position of limited usefulness today. This phenomenon calls for a reappraisal of the spectrum of the organisms causing ostcomelitis and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern. While the number of newer antibiotics is rapidly increasing not all of them are easily available in India. With this background it was felt worthwhile to study the spectrum of organisms causing osteomyelitis and their susceptibility to those antibiotics which are readily available everywhere in this country. One hundred consecutive cases of haematogenous osteomyelitis attending the Department of Orthopaedics, S.S. Hospital, Banaras Hindu University were taken for this study without any selection. The antibiotic used for the sensitivity Penicillin, Streptomycin, Erythromycin, Tetracycline, Ampicillin and Chloramphenicol.
