Carbapenems are often used for the treatment of complicated nfections caused by extended-spectrum -lactamase-producing lebsiella pneumoniae [1]. However, the emergence and spread f carbapenemases endanger the activity of these antibiotics as herapeutic options. To date, one case of carbapenemase (NDM)-producing K. pneumoniae has been reported in Malaysia [2]. igh-level aminoglycoside resistance due to 16S rRNA methylases as been increasingly documented, particularly in NDM-producing… CONTINUE READING
