OBJECTIVES There are limited data on Enterobacter cloacae outbreaks and fewer describing these in association with NDM-1. With whole-genome sequencing, we tested the hypothesis that a cluster of 16 E. cloacae bacteraemia cases in a Nepali neonatal unit represented a single clonal outbreak, using a wider set of epidemiologically unrelated clinical E. cloacae isolates for comparison. METHODS Forty-three isolates were analysed, including 23 E. cloacae and 3 Citrobacter sp. isolates obtained from… CONTINUE READING
