Outbreak by meropenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa producing IMP-6 metallo-beta-lactamase in a Korean hospital.

Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates containing the bla(IMP-6) gene were recovered from 5 patients hospitalized at a tertiary-care hospital in Korea. The bla(IMP-6) gene was in a class 1 integron containing 5 different insert gene cassettes. All of the isolates showed identical pattern in SpeI macrorestriction analysis.
