Sensitivity of Antibiotics Containing Citrobacter Bacteria


Enterobacteria are one of the most common infectious agents among opportunistic pathogens. Both among community-acquired and hospital-acquired infections, such as intestinal and extra-intestinal localization (urinary, respiratory tract infections, intra-abdominal infections, skin and soft tissues, as well as generalized infections), the cases with resistant citrobacteria are quite common to observe. Recently, Citrobacter bacteria are getting widely spread as determinants of antibiotic resistance through its representatives. This fact greatly complicates the therapy towards infections.
