Acinetobacter baumannii is a multidrug-resistant bacterium that is normally a commensal pathogen. [] Key Result In spite of antibiotic treatment, the patient developed increasing contractions and chorioamnionitis, resulting in caesarean section in the 31st week of gestation. Moreover, although being treated with carbapenems, the patient presented postpartal with fever and septic symptoms, which could only be treated by escalation of the dosage of the given carbapenem. In conclusion, A. baumannii can lead to…
Infección urinaria por Acinetobacter baumannii adquirida en la comunidad: caso clínico de una paciente embarazada
TLDR
Pregnant woman entered 15 weeks after the previous admission with urinary symptoms, grade III fetal pattern and altered blood biochemistry, whereby she underwent surgery, obtaining a premature birth which was treated with antimicrobial therapy.
Anti-Bacterial Susceptibility Patterns of Acinetobacter baumannii Isolated from Urine of Pregnant Women in Baghdad.
TLDR
This study aimed to determining prevalence of A. baumannii in pregnant women of different trimester with urinary tract infection (UTIs) and their antibiotics susceptibility patterns and isolation and identification bacteria depending on bacterial culture and Vitek system.
Pregnancy and Perinatal Outcomes Associated with Acinetobacter baumannii Infection
TLDR
This is the first case series report of A. baumannii-positive cultures in maternal, fetal, and neonatal specimen, with histopathologic evidence of infection.
Maternal and neonatal effects of Acinetobacter colonisation in preterm premature rupture of membrane and term labour.
TLDR
This study does not support the suggestion that A. baumannii colonisation in cases with PPROM and those with spontaneous onset of labour at term is associated with adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes.
Colonization of Acinetobacter baumannii, Streptococcus agalactiae (GBS) and Candida albicans in preterm premature rupture of membrane (PPROM) compared to normal labor at term
Aims: Preterm premature rupture of membrane (PPROM) is usually associated with maternal vaginal colonization of Group B Streptococci (GBS). However, there are reports on isolation of Acinetobacter
Spatio-Temporal Distribution of Acinetobacter baumannii in Germany—A Comprehensive Systematic Review of Studies on Resistance Development in Humans (2000–2018)
TLDR
Increased awareness, extensive study of mechanisms of resistance and development of alternative strategies for treatment are required to understand the dynamics of spread, to identify the main reservoirs and routes of transmission and to develop targeted intervention strategies.
Ispitivanje učestalosti polimorfizama gena za faktor nekroze tumora α, interleuikin 6 i interleukin 1β kod prevremeno rođene dece kao faktora rizika za nastanak sepse
TLDR
The study has shown that AA genotype of IL-1β -511 G/A polymorphism was a significant predictor of lethal outcome of early onset sepsis, and may be predictor of EOS lethal outcome.
Bacteria in the amniotic fluid without inflammation: early colonization vs. contamination
TLDR
The isolation of microorganisms from a sample of amniotic fluid in the absence of intra-amniotic inflammation is indicative of a benign condition, which most likely represents contamination of the specimen during the collection procedure or laboratory processing rather than early colonization or infection.
When One Drug Affects 2 Patients
TLDR
Medication selection for the pregnant inpatient is a particularly complex task as the illnesses and conditions that require hospitalization mandate different medications, and the risk versus benefit ratio can vary significantly compared to the outpatient setting.

Therapeutic options for Acinetobacter baumannii infections
TLDR
The pooled data suggest that infections by A. baumannii may be associated with considerable attributable mortality, and in cases of pneumonia and bacteraemia, inappropriate treatment is associated with, among other factors, mortality.
Outcomes of Acinetobacter baumannii infection in critically ill surgical patients.
TLDR
The majority of A. baumannii isolates were MDR, and a significant proportion were sensitive only to colistin, which is effective by both intravenous and nebulized routes of administration.
Acinetobacter baumannii: a universal threat to public health?
Post-caesarean septicaemia in Kandang Kerbau Hospital, Singapore, 1993-1995.
TLDR
The most common clinical conditions found were endomyometritis, urinary tract infection, and wound infection among the 22 documented cases of septicaemia following caesarean deliveries in Kandang Kerbau Hospital between 1st January 1993 to 31st December 1995.
Acinetobacter baumannii: an emerging multidrug-resistant threat
TLDR
The threat posed by this organism in hospital and community settings is put into perspective, new information that is changing the authors' view of Acinetobacter virulence and resistance is described, and greater understanding is called for of how this multifaceted organism came to be a major pathogen.
Treatment of Acinetobacter infections.
TLDR
Novel derivatives of cephalosporins, carbapenems, fluoroquinolones, or completely new antibiotic classes, of which several investigational drugs seem promising, may constitute the future of antibiotic therapy and hence the treatment of Acinetobacter infections.
Opportunistic nosocomial multiply resistant bacterial infections--their treatment and prevention.
TLDR
The emergence and spread of Klebsiella pneumoniae and other Enterobacteriaceae producing novel plasmid-mediated beta-lactamases active against third-generation cephalosporins contribute to the difficulty in treating nosocomial infections.
