PURPOSE Nosocomial infections caused by multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii have emerged as a serious problem in healthcare settings worldwide. METHODOLOGY A total of 100 A. baumannii clinical isolates from immunocompromised patients hospitalized in ICUs in Iran were investigated for antimicrobial susceptibility and the presence of carbapenemase and antiseptic resistance genes. RESULTS All isolates were resistant to one or more antibiotics, with the most frequent resistance found… CONTINUE READING
