Salmonella enterica Serotype Gambia with CTX-M-3 and armA Resistance Markers: Nosocomial Infections with a Fatal Outcome

Abstract

We report two cases of bacteremia caused by the Salmonella enterica serotype Gambia in our children's hospital, with one fatal outcome. The isolates showed indistinguishable genotypes and infrequent resistance markers: CTX-M-3 extended-spectrum β-lactamase and armA methyltransferase. This is the first report of S. Gambia exhibiting CTX-M-3 and armA markers involved in serious infections.
