Abstract

Three cases were referred to the Rajaei hospital in Karaj, Iran, and the culture of lung secretions resulted in isolation of multidrugresistant Acinetobacter baumannii. Although antibiotic treatment was started, all the three patients died. This report describes the clinical course of the illness. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, no cases of multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii have been reported previously in the Rajaei hospital, Karaj.
