Abstract

A 42-year-old man developed necrotizing fasciitis on the right leg. A multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii was cultivated from the deep wound. Following therapy with imipenem and tobramycin as well as extensive debridement, the lesions improved slowly. A. baumannii is today an important cause of nosocomial infections, especially in intensive care units.
