The article offers information on a 2-year study of the prevalence of shigellosis, the common species isolated and the antibiotic susceptibility patterns of the isolates. It shows the different susceptibility patterns of Shigella sp. to a variety of antibiotics, in which highest resistance seen against three antimicrobials such as cotrimoxazole, ampicillin, and ciprofloxacin.
