AbstractA study consisting of 350 cases of pyoderma was carried out at Medical College and Hospital, Rohtak, with respect to microorganisms in pyoderma. Urine analysis was also done to note urinary changes due to streptococcal skin diseases. Betaha emolytic group A streptococci were isolated from 207 cases (59.14 per cent). All strains of organisms were bacitracin sensitive (100 per cent). The commonly isolated strains were T11 and T13 followed by T1, T3/ 13/B 3264 and then others. The common T pattern was T4/13/B 3264 (28.88 per cent) followed by T5/11/12/27/44 (22.22 per cent) Urine analysis revealed albuminuria in 19 cases (5.42, per cent), haematuria in 2 cases and pyuria in 5 cases. The streptococci isolated in present study showed no resistance to penicillin. 2 to 25 per cent resistance to other antibiotics was found.
