We here present the first case of a metronidazole resistant nimD positive Bacteroides stercoris. The isolate originated from a polymicrobial intra-abdominal abscess in a 70-year-old woman. The nimD gene was detected by use of whole-genome shotgun sequencing and the subsequent use of the ResFinder 2.1 web service.
- Anaerobic infection
- Bacteroides stercoris
- Metronidazole resistance
- Nitroimidazole resistance (nim) genes
