First report of meningococcal ciprofloxacin resistance in Greece due to invasive isolates of the sequence type ST-3129

Abstract

A local outbreak caused by Neisseria meningitidis occurred in the migration camp in the Greek island of Lesbos during January-February 2020 (4 of 5 cases). In total, 5 samples positive for N. meningitidis were further investigated for sero-/genogroup, PorA, and WGS analysis. MenB was found among 3 cases, while in two cases, MenY was identified. WGS analysis and antibiotic susceptibility testing on the 2 culture positive MenB samples showed the new ST-3129, ciprofloxacin-resistant clone was circulating among the immigrants in the aforementioned camp. This is the first report of ciprofloxacin resistance in Greece.
