Shigellosis is an important food borne pathogen of worldwide economic significance. Water is the most common vehicle for this infection in humans. It has been isolated from wide variety of foods such as beef, chicken, egg, millk, fish, vegetables and fruits. The object of this study was to determine Shigella antibiotic resistance pattern against the antibiotics such as ampicillin, erythromycin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, azithromycin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, co-trimaxazole, ceftriaxone and gentamicin. In this cross-sectional study, a total of 17 Shigella strains were collected from different specimens (farm water, milk, chicken and fish). The isolated strains showed resistance to ampicillin (82.3%), tetracycline (70.6%), erythromycin (47.1%), ofloxacin (47.1%), ciprofloxacin (41.2%), azithromycin (41.2%), chloramphenicol (35.3%), co-trimaxazole (17.7%), ceftriaxone (11.8%) and gentamicin (11.8%).
