Abstract

MACIEL, Wirlaine Glauce et al. Identification of São Paulo metallo-beta-lactamase-1-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the Central-West region of Brazil: a case study. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.1, pp.135-137. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0284-2016.

Metallo-beta-lactamase production is an important mechanism for carbapenem resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa , which represents an emerging public health challenge. We report the case of a patient admitted to an intensive care unit, with sepsis caused by multidrug-resistant São Paulo Metallo-beta-lactamase-1-producing P. aeruginosa . This is the first case of infection by this pathogenic strain in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Thus, infection control measures are required for preventing future spread and outbreaks.

Keywords : Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Metallo-beta-lactamase; SPM.
