One hundred specimens from cases of chronic maxillary sinusitis were cultured for the isolation of Anaerobic and Aerobic bacteria. Positive cultures were obtained in 75%; anaerobic bacteria alone were present in 20%, aerobic alone in 28% and a combination of both in 27%. The anaerobes isolated were Bacteroides 51.9%, Anaerobic gram positive cocci 38.4% and Clostricium perfringens 3.8%. Aerobic bacteriology showed the predominance of Escherichia coli (40%). Metronidazole was found to be most effective drug against Anearobes and Gentamicin against aerobes.
