All the patients with antibiotics in their prescriptions, between 18-65 years of age were included in the study. Data were collected in Case Record Form (CRF). In this study, total 250 Hyderabad adult patients’ prescriptions were analyzed. Among them 148 (59.20%) were male and 102 (40.80%) were female. The maximum number of patients were found to be 18-30 years of age group. Among all ENT infections, Most common infection was Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM).
