Acinetobacter baumannii is an opportunistic nosocomial pathogen, which is an important cause of pneumonia and bacteremia in patients in intensive care units (1). Increased resistance to all commercial antimicrobial agents, including colistin, in clinical isolates of A. baumannii has been reported (7, 12). An important factor for the development of multiresistance is the acquisition of genetic elements, such as integrons (6). Different reports have been published, identifying integrons as… CONTINUE READING
