Study of Nonfermentative gram negative bacilli at a tertiary care centre

Amol S Shyamkuwar, Narendra G Deogade, Bharat J Wadher


Nonfermentative gram negative bacilli (NFGNBs) are most often considered to be commensals or contaminants but the pathogenic potential of these organisms has been established. These are innately resistant to many antibiotics and are known to produce extended spectrum β-lactamases and metallo β-lactamases. NFGNBs were isolated from clinical samples of urine, sputum, pus and conjunctiva. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter spp., and Moraxella spp. were the predominant isolates. NFGNBs isolated were multiple drugs resistant.
