Fluoroquinolone-resistant Alcaligenes faecalis related to chronic suppurative otitis media, Angola
Research output: Contribution to journal › Letter
We found that 20 (10.6%) of 188 patients with chronic suppurative otitis media in Angola were co-colonized with fluoroquinolone-resistant Alcaligenes faecalis, commonly found in birds. A likely explanation for our findings was the use of bird feces by residents as a traditional remedy to prevent ear secretions caused by primary ear infection.
