Klebsiella oxytoca that produced extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) and were resistant to ceftazidime were isolated from infants in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). During a 30-week period, 3 infants developed infections and an additional 60 infants were colonized with these bacteria. The molecular typing data suggested transmission of a single(More)
(bla PER-1 and bla VIM-2) had been detected separately among clinical isolates, underscores the possibility of the emergence of new threatening combinations of resistance determinants among nosocomial pathogens. In fact, the recruitment of similar resistance determinants within a single P. aerugi-nosa strain can determine a resistance phenotype to virtually(More)
Endophthalmitis, attributable to Actinomyces viscosus, developed in a 78-year-old man after cataract surgery. Postoperative endophthalmitis with this organism is a rare occurrence. This report emphasizes the importance of the Actinomyces species as potential eye pathogens and presents antimicrobial susceptibility data for the isolate.
