Several studies have suggested that resistance determinants usually reduce virulence. However, their contribution to decrease bloodstream infections is unclear. Our aim was to identify risk factors of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) bacteremia and to assess the prevalence of XDR-PA bacteremia. A retrospective study of PA bloodstream infections in our patient population with at least one clinical sample isolate due to PA (2006–2007) was carried out. A total of 2,131… CONTINUE READING
