Abstract

We screened 21 extended spectrum β-lactamase-producing with reduced susceptibility to carbapenems for carbapenemase production. Five strains (four and one ) showed carbapenemase production, which was identified as OXA-48. The gene was detected on ~54 kb plasmids belonging to IncA/C in one case. Two isolates harboured IS, which is involved in mobilization. Carbapenem resistance in enterobacteria should be regarded as an emerging clinical problem in our hospital and necessitates rigorous surveillance in order to limit its spread.
