Two hundred strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from four different hospitals in Benghazi, were tested for antibiogram and pyocin typing patterns. The sensitivity was highest to colistin (95%) followed by gentamicin (70.5%) and carbenidilin (52.5%). High or total resistance was observed to all other antibiotics, with all strains exhibiting multiple antibiotic resistance. Pyocin typability was very high (99.5%) but only 56.8% of them were classifiable with type A1 as the predominant pyocin type (112 strains).
