BACKGROUND Outbreaks of nosocomial infection due to carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), mostly Klebsiella spp., have become a worldwide phenomenon. AIM To investigate the risk factors for the acquisition of clonal multidrug-resistant Klebsiella oxytoca (MDRKO) producing the metallo-β-lactamase IMP-8 and hyperproducing chromosomal OXY-2 β-lactamase during a well-characterized outbreak, and to describe the clinical features of infections due to MDRKO. METHODS A four-wave outbreak… CONTINUE READING
