Abstract

We report an outbreak by MDR K. variicola clone (ST771) in a Bangladeshi neonatal unit from October, 2016 to January, 2017, associated with high mortality (54.5%). During the outbreak, K. variicola ST771 acquired MDR plasmid harbouring blaNDM-1, linked to high exposure to ceftriaxone and amikacin in the NICU of DMCH.
