Abstract

We identified and characterized a genome of the multi-drug-resistant genomospecies recovered from an invasive specimen from a hospitalized patient in Canada. The strain was resistant to penicillin, pipercillin-tazobactam, meropenem, clindaymycin and metronidazole. The strain harboured a plasmid containing the gene, which has been shown to be associated with metronidazole resistance. The study highlights the importance of being vigilant in suspecting antimicrobial drug resistance when a patient is not improving on therapy.
