Abstract [en]

Background: Patients with clinical manifestations suggestive of otitis externa.

Objective: To study the prevalence of mycotic infection in these patients.

Methods: Ear swabs were taken from these patients and both direct examination and culture were done.

Results: The most common pathogenic fungal isolates were Candida species (8.4%) and Aspergillus niger (4.2%). Conclusion: Besides Aspergillus and Candida species isolated in these patients, many bacteria were also seen. Dry climate, wearing head clothes, presence of middle ear infection, wearing hearing aids and swimming were predisposing factors for this infection.
