Acinetobacter baumannii is an important pathogen causing infections, especially in burnt patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase (ESBL) and Metallo-Beta-Lactamase (MBL) in isolates of A. baumannii from burnt patients. One hundred-twenty-six A. baumannii strains were isolated from both male and(More)
Gastric inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare tumor with and unpredictable prognosis usually find in young adults. We present an 18-yearold man with gastric IMT.

BACKGROUND Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important lifethreatening nosocomial pathogen which plays a prominent role in wound infections in burns patients. We designed this study to identify the isolates of P. aeruginosa recovered from burns patients at the genus and species levels by means of primers targeting oprI and oprL genes. METHODS During a 5-month(More)
INTRODUCTION Multidrug resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa may be due to efflux pump overexpression. This study phenotypically examined the role of efflux pump inhibitors in decreasing antibiotic cross-resistance between beta-lactams, fluoroquinolones, and aminoglycosides in P. aeruginosa isolates from burn patients in Iran.
