Abstract: 

Background: Carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii has been isolated highly in recent years. Metallo-b-lactamases (MBLs) have been detected and reported from A. baumannii producing carbapenemases in recent times. The aim of this study was to determine both phenotypic and genotyping of MBL producing A. baumannii isolates.
Methods: A total of 110 Acinetobacter spp. were collected from clinical specimens of hospitals in Kermanshah, a western province of Iran. To screen the MBLs, E-test strips (AB Biodisk, Solna, Sweden) were used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. DNA genomic of A. baumannii isolates was SmaI-digested and analyzed by CHEF Mapper PFGE.
Results: 89 MBL-producing isolates (80.9%) were found using E-test MBL. 68 out of 89 isolates were collected from ICU and 16 isolates from emergency and 5 isolates from children ward. Among 47 MBL producing A.baumannii selected for pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis, we obtained 7 pulsotypes including 4 common types and 3 single types.
Conclusion: Our study showed that most of the isolates of A. baumannii were obtained from ICU and most members of cloneA were collected from this ward. The presence of CloneA in ICU ward is warning.
