Co-existence of blaNDM-1 and blaVIM-1 producing Moellerella wisconsensis in NICU of North Indian Hospital
Infections caused by carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae have become a major threat to public health, worldwide. Here we report clinically significant NDM-1 and VIM-1 producing Moellerella wisconsensis which has not yet been described in the literature; this is the first report of M. wisconsensis strain harbouring blaNDM-1 and blaVIM-1, recovered from the rectal swab of a low birth weight female child admitted in NICU of the north Indian tertiary care hospital. A plasmid of IncW incompatibility with size of 154 kb was observed in AK-92 strain.
