Mahmood NM, Al-Taai NA, Khalil NK., Prevalence of bacteria isolated from burn wounds, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (1): 23-27, 2023. In hospitals, burn mortality is mainly due to bacterial contamination by poor hygiene. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, -hemolytic streptococci, E. coli, Klebsiella spp and coliform bacilli are predominant. Burns can be superficial or penetrate skin to reach bone. We review pathophysiology of burn wounds, prevalent bacteria and their correlation with mortality.


Key words: bacteria, burn, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, wound.
