High colistin resistance rates in Acinetobacter spp. were recently reported in Korean hospitals (J. Antimicrob. Chemother 2007;60:1163). In this study, we investigated if colistin-resistant Acinetobacter spp. isolates from Korean hospitals disseminated clonally or emerged independently. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) analysis was performed for 58 colistin-resistant Acinetobacter spp. isolates: 8 isolates of the Acinetobacter baumannii subgroup A, 16 isolates of the A. baumannii subgroup B… CONTINUE READING
