Between 1984 and 1986 a total of 1000 faecal samples and rectal swabs were cultured from patients presenting with diarrhea.
Shigellae were isolated from 5.6% of these samples.
Shigella fleneri was the commonest isolated (68%), followed by Sh. sonnei (23%). A total of 22.8% of children (0-12 years of age) were positive for shigellae.
Twenty-seven (48.2%) strains were sensitive to all the five antibiotics tested (streptomycin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, ampicillin and sulphonamide).
