Administration of either amikacin (1985) or gentamicin (1984, 1986-1991) as first-choice aminoglycoside did not decrease the high incidence of amikacin-resistant Serratia marcescens (ARSm) isolates responsible for nosocomial infections at the J.A. Fernández Hospital of Buenos Aires (42% in 1984, 31% in 1985 and 41% in 1987, differences not significant). In addition, a significant peak (P = 0.003) was detected in 1986, with an ARSm incidence of 70%. The incidence of ARSm decreased by 1988-1991… CONTINUE READING
