- Aim: The purpose of this study was to identify dominant pathogens and their antimicrobial susceptibilities of endodontic
infection in type II diabetes mellitus (DM) patients to determine effective empirical antibiotics.
Methodology: Pathogens from endodontic infection in six patients with DM and in six patients without DM were cultured,
identified and their antimicrobial susceptibility was tested using Vitek2 systems (bioMérieux, Marcy l’ Etoile, France). The results
were analyzed using Chi-square test and Fisher’s exact test at P< 0.05 level.
Results: Pathogens of opportunistic infection were dominant in DM patients (P=0.015).
However, there was no significant difference of antimicrobial susceptibility between DM and non-DM patients. Relatively high
percent (27%) of pathogens showed resistance to penicillin.
Conclusions: More cautions should be paid to DM patients because they are prone to opportunistic infection. Penicillin is not
effective in the control of endodontic infection.
