Infection with carbapenemase-producing organisms after cosmetic surgery at a hospital abroad
In Denmark, the incidence of carbapenemase-producing organisms (CPO) is increasing, and a coordinated national strategy is needed. We describe a case story of a 40-year-old woman transferred to a Danish hospital with severe complications after cosmetic surgery in the Middle East. She had an intra-abdominal infection with three different CPO, one of them co-resistant to colistin, one of the few remaining antibiotics for CPO treatment. Because of good clinical response to surgical treatment, antibiotics covering these multiresistant bacteria were not given. Isolation pre­cautions were applied.
