Otitis media is an inflammatory disease of the middle ear. It is an infection of rapid onset that usually presents with ear pain. It results from a sore throat, cold and respiratory or breathing problems through transferring to the middle ear. The objective of this study to investigate the bacteria causing otitis media and testing their antibiotics sensitivity . fifty swabs samples of otitis media patients were collected from Kirkuk hospital for period from 1/ 11/2018 to30/ 3/2019,the patient's age ranged (10-50)years old. The bacterial isolates were calculated and the sensitivity for several antibiotics was tested. We found that S.pyogen by 34.8,klebsiella 23.2, S.aureus 17.4, pseudomonas 5.8,Streptococcus pneumonia 5.8.S.epidremidis 11.6. Amikacin was the highest sensitivity by 38.09, Ciprofloxacin 23.8, the similarity of Ampicillin and Rifampicin by 14.28%, and erythromycin recorded about 9.52 . the higher infection of otitis media reported in male patients about (80%) and the percent in the female about (20%).S.pyogen appear the higher percentage. Male higher than females in infection percentage. All bacteria were sensitive to amikacin. the first age group was the highest infection of otitis media
