Abstract

Non fermenting Gram Negative Bacilli (NFGNB) once considered as contaminants have now emerged as a major cause of life threatening nosocomial infections and as multidrug resistant pathogens Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii were the most common NFGNB isolated in this study. Difference in antimicrobial susceptibility by nonfermenters pose a great problem in treating these infections. ESBL and MBL production by these organisms lead to high morbidity and mortality and left with the only option of treating them by potentially toxic drugs like Colistin and Polymyxin B.
