By A. Al Atrouni, M.-L. Joly-Guillou, M. Hamze and M. Kempf


Acinetobacter spp. have emerged as global opportunistic pathogen causing a wide range of infections. Emergence of carbapenem resistance in these organisms is a matter of great concern. We report here the first detection of Acinetobacter pittii clinical isolates in Lebanon carrying either the blaNDM-1 or the blaOXA-72 gene
