First identification of OXA-72 carbapenemase from Acinetobacter pittii in Colombia

, : First identification of OXA-72 carbapenemase from Acinetobacter pittii in Colombia. Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 56(7): 3996-3998

OXA-72 has been reported in few countries around the world. We report the first case in Colombia in an Acinetobacter pittii clinical isolate. The arrival of a new OXA, into a country with high endemic resistance, poses a significant threat, especially because the potential for widespread dissemination is considerable.
