The present study was done on 186 isolates obtained from both animals (107 isolates) and patients (79 isolates). The study aimed at comparing the antimicrobial patterns of pathogens isolated from animal and human cases (nosocomial infections). The isolates were identified and the antibiograms were reported. The results pointed out that E. coli was the most common isolate followed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa in human samples, while in animal samples the most common Gram negative isolates recovered were Pseudomonas aeruginosa followed by Proteus spp. On the other hand, Staphylococcus aureus was the most common Gram positive isolate in animal and human samples. Conclude that, both animal and human isolates were markedly resistant to different types of antibacterial agents. However, animal isolates compared with human isolates showed more resistance to most of the used antibacterial agents. This can be attributed to the fact that in our country, animals are generally exposed to several antibacterial agents either as therapeutic, prophylactic or as growth promoter agents.
