Aim: Pneumonia is a common disease in child patients caused by streptococcus pneumoniae. The aim of this research was determined for the identification of Streptococcus pneumonia and their antibiotic sensitivity profile. Methodology And Results : A total of 40 samples were randomly collected from three main hospitals in the Dinajpur district of Bangladesh and analyzed through different bacteriological, biochemical, molecular and antibiotic susceptibility testing. Out of 40 samples, positive cases of pneumonia were found to be 37.5% & 15 isolates were isolated. The Frequency of pneumonia in relation to age were 3-5yrs (50%), 6-8yrs (33.33%), 9- 11yrs (25%) & 12-15 (20%). The present study reveals that the study area had no significant effect (P > 0.05), but age (P < 0.05) & socioeconomic status (P < 0.05) had significant effects on the prevalence of pneumonia in pneumonia patients. Among the age group, the prevalence of pneumonia was highest (50%) in the 3-5 years age group. The Highest prevalence of pneumonia was found in poor socio-economic status (54.54%). Streptococcus pneumoniae was characterized by 16S rRNA Sequencing & the identified strain was Streptococcus pneumoniae NBRC102642.
