AbstractScabies is considered to be the commonest disease among the patient attending most Dermatology outpatientdepartments in ourcountry. Pyoderma sometimes appears as the main clinical presentation in scabies. The treatment of pyoderma can be rational only if the clinician has thorough knowledge of the nature and behaviour of the causative organisms as well as their sensitivity patterns to antibiotics. A bacteriological survey of 75 patients with scabies was done in the Department of Dermatology of the BRD Medical College Gorakhpur in association with the Department of Pathology. This study involved a detailed history and clinical examination as well as culture and sensitivity test in each case. Staphylococcus was found to be the commonest organism responsible for the secondary infection.
