ABSTRACT

Serratia marcescens is an opportunistic pathogen in the form of a gram-negative bacillus belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. It is a germ responsible for nosocomial infections whose usual localization are respiratory, urinary, gastrointestinal and ocular systems. However, otological localization is unusual. We report a case of a 37-year-old woman with no particular history, who came to consult for acute left-sided otorrhoea. He had received a classic treatment of a purulent otitis media, but no satisfactory improvement. The cyto-bacteriological examination by auricular outflow swab had found a marcescens serratia resistant to our first line anti-infectious treatment. This causal germ was sensitive to the fluoroquinolones according to the result of the antibiogram. The cure was significant after 10 days of local and general treatment adapted.

Keywords: Bacteriological examination, Otorrhea, Serratia marcescens, Swabbing.
