Background: Acinetobacter species are ubiquitous in the environment and are important causative agent for nososcomial infection especially in immunocompromised patients. Multi drug resistant Acinetobacter lwoffii are emerging as a pathogen in neoanatal sepsis. Aims and objective: This study was aimed to evaluate the clinical and antibiotic profile of Acinetobacter lwoffii. Material and methods: This study was done on blood samples from neonates admitted to neonatal intensive care unit during a period of one year from January to December , who developed Acinetobacter infection. The diagnosis of isolates and antibiotic susceptibility testing was done by both conventional as well as by automated system. Results: Out of total 13, blood samples received for culture,

Due to its ubiquitous nature, it is a potential opportunistic pathogen in patients with impaired immune systems, and it has been identified as a cause of nosocomial infections like septicemia, pneumonia, meningitis, urinary tract infections, skin and wound infections.

Acinetobacter Lwoffii an Emerging Pathogen in Neonatal ICU
Resistant Gram Negative Infections: Acinetobacter. Rossana Rosa, John Mills, L. There is interest in members of the Acinetobacter genus as cause of nosocomial infections. We aim to compare the clinical and microbiological characteristics of bacteremia due to Acinetobacter lwoffii, with those of bacteremia due to Acinetobacter baumannii. Controls were patients with at least one blood culture positive for A. Baseline demographics, microbiological characteristics, and treatments administered were obtained.
