Abstract

An outbreak of carbapenamase (KPC)-producing occurred at our institution. Multiresistant could have acquired this transmissible resistance mechanism, going unnoticed because its phenotypic detection in this species is difficult. We compared isolates obtained before and after the KPC-producing outbreak. No genes were detected in the isolates obtained before the outbreak, whereas 33/76 (43 %) of the isolates obtained after the outbreak harboured the gene. may thus become a reservoir of this transmissible resistance mechanism. It is very important to understand the epidemiology of these multiresistant isolates, in order to achieve early implementation of adequate control measures to contain and reduce their dissemination in the hospital environment.
