Abstract

Following prolonged hospitalization that included broad-spectrum antibiotic exposure, a strain of was cultured from the blood of a patient undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation treatment for hypoxic respiratory failure due to COVID-19. The strain was resistant to all antimicrobials tested including the novel siderophore cephalosporin, cefiderocol. Whole genome sequencing detected ten antimicrobial resistance genes, including the metallo-β-lactamase , the extended-spectrum β-lactamase , and the rare 16S methyltransferase .
