Background and Aim: In this study drug susceptibility of shigella strains was detected in diarrheal patients in Gonabad,s 22-Bahman hospital, 2005-2006. Materials and Methods:For this purpose, Kirby-Bauer method of susceptibility testing was used for drug susceptibility of shigella strains. Results: In total, 134 samples belong to the patients referred to Gonabad,s 22-Bahman hospital, were collected. From 134 cases, 32 cases were identified as shigellosis. All of the isolates were sensitive to Cefotaxime, Ceftizoxime and Ciprofloxacin, 81/3% and 53/1% of the isolates were resistant to Tetracycline and Sulfametoxazole -Trimetoprime respectively. Conclusion: The dramatic rise in resistance has a major implication for the appropriate selection of antibiotics and brought empiric use of Tetracycline and Sulfametoxazole- Trimetoprime in to question.
