 en Identification of uropathogenic Escherichia coli check for this species in other resources clonal group A (CgA) in hospitalised patients
Dias, Rubens CS; Marangoni, Denise V; Riley, Lee W & Moreira, Beatriz M


This study provides the first description of healthcare-associated infections with Escherichia coli check for this species in other resources clonal group A (CgA) isolates in Latin America. Isolates were typed by enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus-PCR, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, E. coli phylogenetic grouping, multilocus sequence typing and fimH single nucleotide polymorphism analysis. Out of 42 E. coli hospital isolates studied, three belonged to E. coli phylogenetic group D and ST69 and had fimH sequences identical to that of the CgA reference strain ATCC BAA-457. E. coli CgA is another potential source of resistant infections in hospitals.
