Abstract: A total 201 discharge from ear (pus) were collected from various patients. The study was carried out in patients and out patients in the hospital. This study was undertaken to isolate different microorganism from Chronic supperative otitis media. The present study showed, the commonest clinical isolate was P. aeruginosa (52 %), followed Staphylococcus aureus (40 %), E. coli (6 %), Proteus (2 %) and fungal isolate Aspergillus Niger (4 %) separately. The sex ratio was found to be male were 56 % and female were 44 %. It often starts in infancy and is among top five illness in childhood. Infection generally results from fungal and bacterial causes and in some cases from other viral infections like Upper respiratory tract infections and tuberculosis.
