ORDONEZ-DIAZ, Karen M.; LEYNERESTUPINAN, José  and  ALZATE, John Alexander. Metalobetalactamasa de tipo Nueva Delhi en Risaralda (Colombia): reporte de un caso. Infect. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.55-57. ISSN 0123-9392.

We reported a case in a man with chronic osteomyelitis of an isolate of Providencia rettgeri carrying New-Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase. The isolate was obtained from the patient's bone culture. The infection was controlled with combined antibiotic therapy (cefepime and gentamicine). This is the first report of an infection produced by Enterobacteriaceae carrier of this metallo-beta-lactamase in the region.

Keywords : NDM-1; osteomyelitis; Providenciarettgeri.
