Rossana Rosa, John Mills, L. There is interest in members of the Acinetobacter genus as cause of nosocomial infections. We aim to compare the llwoffii 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. Multidrug resistance was defined as resistance to at least one antibiotic within three different antibiotic classes.


Source of infection was defined using CDC criteria. Difference in means and medians were acinetobzcter using Student’s -t tests and non-parametric tests, respectively. Mean SOFA score among cases was 3.

Blood cultures with A. Drug resistance patters based on nosocomial versus community onset of bacteremia are seen in the table. No differences were found in source of infection or mortality.
