ABSTRACT:

Background and Objective: The Bacteria of pneumonia can also lead to Empyema Thoracic (ET) which can be lethal in causing morbidity and mortality. If we analyze the authors work, they describe different contributing organisms activating the empyema thoracic in the patients. This research was held in a local setup to determine the frequency of major contributing organism. The research objective was the assessment of several microorganisms present in patients of empyema thoracic growing in the result of complications occurring due to bacterial pneumonia. Methods: Our descriptive cross-sectional research was carried out at Mayo Hospital, Lahore (February 2017 to July 2017) on a total of 102 empyema thoracic patients. Aspirate from pleural cavity sent for reports at culture and sensitivity. The culture and sensitivity reports showed the main outcome variable was the frequency of microorganism explain in tables as a frequency distribution. Results: The study included 102 patients in which male and female were respectively 54 (52.9%) and 48 (47.1%). Mean ages were (33.32 ± 13.62) years, range (18 – 67) years. A number of patients with age, gender distribution, growth determination and micro-organisms distribution were also stratified in this research. Conclusion: It is an established fact that the most causative microorganism identified in the patients with empyema thoracic was Streptococcus milleri. Keywords: Empyema thoracic, bacterial pneumonia, microorganisms
