Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the common infections in a hospital set up. The main objective of the present study is to analyse the prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection and its antibiogram in a tertiary hospital. 830 samples were included in the study. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was isolated from 100 samples using standard conventional techniques. Antibiotic susceptibility testing was done by using modified – Kirby - Bauer disc diffusion method. In our study, highest resistance was observed for Cefotaxime, cefdinir and Cefuroxime (90, 88 and 83 %). Least resistance was seen for Amikacin and Gentamicin (7% and 18%) indicating them to be better drugs in treating the Pseudomonas infections.
