Posted On : 25 Nov 2021
A 10-year boy is having a chronic cough. His throat Culture showed pseudomonas and sensitivity to Inj cefperazone. Does throat culture has any value in the case of chronic cough and the report of pseudomonas is correct?
Expert Answer :
The presence of pseudomonas in the throat culture in this child should be further investigated. Unless the child has had recent instrumentation of the airway eg intubation, a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis should be excluded in the assessment of the chronic cough.
