Abstract

We report here the first isolation in Japan of a carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain that carries the metallo-beta-lactamase gene bla(IMP-7). This isolate revealed high-level resistance to all of the tested antibiotics except for piperacillin, showing a multidrug-resistant phenotype.
