All isolated diagnosed by microscopic and morphological characteristics, while API system was used for biochemical detection. The percentage of bacteria in isolates was 50 % of Staphylococcus aureus, 20 % of Staphylococcus, 12.5 % of both E. coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 5 % of Serratia marcescens. The serum levels of IL-6 significantly increased in the patients (341.6534.44 pg/ml) compared with healthy group (169.6272.55 pg/ml). Although, TNF- levels significantly decreased in the patients (228.5518. pg/ml) compared with healthy group (317.0924.53 pg/ml). Moreover, a positive correlation was observed between the levels IL-6 and TNF- with correlation coefficient of 0.452.
