Multidrug resistant (MDR) P.aeruginosa had emerged in Egypt and seen mainly in nosocomial infections due to the selective pressure by overusage of antibiotics. This study was planned to delineate prevalence of MDR P.aeruginosa in nosocomial infection patients, and to screen for ESβLs producing P.aeruginosa with typing of P.aeruginosa isolates in Menofia University Hospitals (MUH), Egypt. Our study included 287 inpatients admitted to Menoufia University Hospital and having different nosocomial… CONTINUE READING
