Hospital infection with Acinetobacter spp. : an increasing problem.
Hospital infection society. International conference. 2. London (GBR), 1990-09-02.
During the last few years, among nosocomial pathogens, Acinetobacter spp. have given rise to an increasing number of nosocomial infections.
Acinetobacter strains are widely distributed in nature; in hospitals, the human skin is the likely source for most outbreaks of hospital infections.
The organism has been frequently found in the inanimate environment, especially in moist situations and it has been isolated from various types of opportunistic infections (septicaemia, endocarditis, meningitis, pneumonia, skin and wound sepsis and urinary tract infection).
