Bacteriology and risk factors of bacterial keratitis in jimma, southwest ethiopia.
CONCLUSIONS: Corneal trauma was the most common risk factor for bacterial keratitis followed by blepharitis. Bacteriological analysis of corneal scrapings also revealed that P. aeruginosa was the most common isolate followed by S. aureus; the antibiotic with the highest susceptibility was ciprofloxacin. As drug resistance among bacterial pathogens is an evolving process, routine surveillance and monitoring studies should be conducted to provide an update and most effective empirical treatment for bacterial keratitis.

Authors: Saadouli D, Yahyaoui S, Ben Issa S, Ben Mansour K, Alaya N, Loukil I, Sammoud A, El Afrit MA Abstract We aimed to describe the epidemiological, etiological and clinical features, treatment and clinical course of sickle cell retinopathy in children and to determine the risk factors for serious involvement. METHODS: This was a retrospective study including all children diagnosed with sickle cell retinopathy. Epidemiological, clinical and therapeutic characteristics, as well as clinical course, were analysed retrospectively by chart review. Two groups were defined: Group 1 (Goldberg stage 1 and 2); Group ...
Authors: Gebremariam Weldearegawi G, Tekola KB, Fseha Teklehaymanot B Abstract Background: Each year there were about 80 million women who experienced unintended pregnancy in the globe. In Ethiopia, around one third of women have experiences of unintended pregnancy. However, the magnitude of unintended pregnancy was not determined in the study area. Hence the aim of the study was to assess the magnitude and associated factors of unintended pregnancy among pregnant women. Methods: Institutional based cross-sectional study design was employed among 345 participants. Participants were selected by systematic random...
