Current Trend Of Nonfermenting Gram Negative Bacilli In A Tertiary Care Hospital In Dehradun, Uttarakhand

Abstract


Introduction: In recent years, due to the liberal and empirical use of antibiotics, Non-fermenting Gram negative bacilli (NFGNB) have emerged as important healthcare-associated pathogens. They have been incriminated in infections, such as, septicemia, meningitis, pneumonia, urinary tract infections (UTI), and surgical site infections (SSI). (Vijaya D et al, 2000) Non-fermenters may differ in their pathogenic potential and transmissibility, and many are multidrug resistant. (Schreckenberger PC et al., 2007) Material & methods: 437 NFGNB isolated over a period 6 months (Nov.2012 to April 2013) were speciated and their antibiotic resistogram analysed. Results: NFGNB accounted for 16.18% of the total isolates. Multidrug resistance strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii & Burkholderia cepacia complex were observed.
