Abstract

serovar Kentucky is an emergent human pathogen. Human infection with ciprofloxacin-resistant Kentucky ST198 has been reported in Europe and North America as a consequence of travel to Asia/the Middle East. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first study reporting the identification of this epidemic clone in India and South Asia.
