Aim of the research to determine etiological structure and resistance to antibiotics of the causative agents of respiratory infections in patients with cystic fibrosis in Republic of Belarus.
Identification and determination of antibiotic resistance of microorganisms, found in 64 samples of respiratory tract secretions, was held out. Results of the research show, that P.aeruginosa was found in 42,6% of samples tested, S. aureus in 39,3%, yeast-like fungi Candida spp. in 32,8%. Many of the strains of microorganisms were highly resistant to antimicrobials. Therefore, choice of drugs for etiotropic therapy of respiratory infections in patients with cystic fibrosis should be carried out concerning species of a causative agent and its antibiotic resistance profile.
