dc.description.abstractIn this study, the serogroup and susceptibility patterns of Shigella and Salmonella spp. isolated from stool cultures were determined using standard laboratory procedures. Among the 76 Shigella isolates serogroup B [‎Sh. flexeneri]‎ was the most prevalent species [‎54.0%]‎ and among the 37 Salmonella strains serogroup B was also the most prevalent [‎81.1%]‎. Antibiograms of Shigella and Salmonella spp. showed 100% resistance to erythromycin and high resistance rates [‎>/= 75%]‎ to ampicillin, cephalothin, chloramphenicol and tetracycline. Salmonella spp. Also had high resistance to gentamicin, sulphonamide, and trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole. Shigella were susceptible to gentamicin [‎100%]‎ and nalidixic acid [‎97.3%]‎ and Shigella and Salmonella were 100.0% susceptible to norfloxacinEN
