Dissemination of Acinetobacter nosocomialis clone among critically ill patients and the environment.

Abstract

We examined the environmental dissemination of Acinetobacter nosocomialis multilocus sequence typing clonal complex 260/71 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, including water from a dam and food samples. The increasing use of sequence based methods has demonstrated a large, previously unpredicted, dissemination of bacteria that may serve as opportunistic pathogens.
