Abstract

The incidence of human Campylobacter infections is increasing worldwide, as well as the proportion of isolates resistant to fluoroquinolones and/or macrolides, the drugs of choice to treat campylobacteriosis. In this review, we report recent developments in the understanding of the resistance mechanisms to fluoroquinolones and macrolides. In addition, we will discuss the recent findings on multidrug resistance in Campylobacter spp.
