  • BACKGROUND The prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) varies between countries and institutions. We studied the prevalence of ESBL among clinical isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae and analyzed patterns of susceptibilities to different antimicrobial agents in a general hospital in Saudi Arabia over a 15-month period. METHODS A total of 2455 clinical isolates of E. coli and K. pneumoniae were tested for ESBL production by double-disk diffusion. The minimum… CONTINUE READING
