PFGE showed that the three isolates belonged to a single strain; nevertheless, no epidemiological link was identified between the renal and haematology patients, or with hospitals elsewhere in the UK or overseas. This is the first identification of E. cloacae with an IMP carbapenemase in the UK based on submissions to HPA Microbiology Services, Colindale.
