A study is made of non-fermenting gram-negative bacterial strains isolated at the Microbiology Lab, "Centro Habana" Pediatric Teaching Hospital. The strains studied come from various types of samples with prevalence of exudates and smears. A definite biotyping of 100% of strains is made. 90.0% are classified within the genus Pseudomonas. In addition, organisms of the genera Acinetobacter, Alcaligenes, Achromobacter, and Moraxella are identified. The most frequent species turned out to be Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which accounted for 68.4% of the total.
