Infection of burn wound with Acinetobacter baumanii

Infection of burn wound with Acinetobacter baumanii

Medycyna Doswiadczalna i Mikrobiologia 46(3): 161-167

This paper describes infection of burn wound with participation of Acinetobacter baumanii in three out of five patients. Species classification of 23 strains of Acinetobacter was performed by application of API 20 NE tests. The profiles obtained through these tests permitted for selection of 8 biotypes. Biotype 00010703 was isolated most frequently. All tested strains of Acinetobacter sp. were susceptible only to netilmicin, norfloxacin, pefloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and imipenem. Out of tested antibiotics, imipenem only was active to all isolated species of bacteria.
