Abstract

In a neonatal/pediatric Gram-negative infection study from Islamabad, 71/82 strains were carbapenem resistant with 12/82 positive for New Delhi Metallo-[beta]-lactamase and many being extensively antibiotic resistant. Burden and outcome analysis on 9 patients showed that 4/9 died after inadequate therapy regardless of organism type.
