The study included the collection of pathological specimens from various sources by 360 sample of hospitals in AL- Diwaniyah city for the period of November 2015  to March 2016  and the samples divided, according to  collected sources to (169 swab ear 0.102 swab burns, and 89 sample urine), results of cultural and biochemical  tests showed that 50 isolate belong to Pseudomonas aeruginosa , tested the sensitivity of the isolates to 7 type of antibiotics, the study results indicated the presence of a relatively high resistance shown by P. aeruginosa to most antibiotics used in the study except Imipenem as Least resistance ratio among the rest of antibiotics 10%, as the study showed that there are 46 isolated (92%) are resistant to at least one of the used β-lactam antibiotics in this study that represent (Carbencilin, Piperacilin, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, cefepime, Imipenem, and  Azteronam ) that they were the highest percentage of Carbencilin (92%,74% ,88% ,82% ,80% ,10% ,68%) respectively.
