Doripenem과 Colistin 병합요법으로 치료된 광범위 약제 내성 Acinetobacter baumannii 균혈증
Extreme Drug Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii Bacteremia treated successfully with Doripenem and Colistin
Acinetobacter baumannii is one of the most problematic causative agents of nosocomial infections, especially in the immune compromised or patients in intensive care units. In recent years, as multiple antibiotic resistant A. baumannii has increasingly emerged, it has become difficult to treat infections effectively. The authors report a case of extreme drug resistant A. baumannii bacteremia caused by catheter-related infection, as confirmed by blood and catheter tip culture, in a 63-year-old man. The patient responded well to 24 days of doripenem and colistin treatment.
