Whereas most of those studies employed molecular techniques, we used minor modifications of conventional microbiological methods to isolate and identify A. otitidis in samples obtained from 20/50 (40%) children referred for myringotomy. Alloiococcus otitidis was isolated from 10/22 (45%) Indigenous and 10/28 (36%) non-Indigenous children. This is the first report of isolation of A. otitidis from Australian children with chronic otitis media. All isolates were sensitive to penicillin, but 14/20 (70%) of the isolates were resistant or partially resistant to erythromycin as assessed by the E-test.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:13:18 AEDT ]]> Alloiococcus otitidis: an emerging pathogen in otitis media /manager/Repository/uon:23765 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:11:09 AEDT ]]>
