DiseaseINFOPACK - Acinetobacter Baumannii

Published/updated: May 2009

Acinetobacter baumannii: Acinetobacter species are ubiquitous in the environment often found in soil and water. In the hospital the bacteria are rare opportunistic pathogens mostly isolated as a cause of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) where patient mortality can range between 30-75%. Of greatest concern is the high intrinsic drug resistance of the most common type Acinetobacter baumannii which forces physicians to use older drugs such as polymixins and colistin with low tolerability profiles. Certain types of Acinetobacter baumannii resistant to carbapenem antibiotics have also caused outbreaks in various countries including the United Kingdom.

This DiseaseINFOPACK report is an expert review of the current literature providing the reader with a full easy-to-read overview of Acinetobacter species. The report covers epidemiology, outbreak case studies along with an assessment of current treatment options and future dynamics.
