Abstract

Objective. To determine the prevalence of extendedspectrum beta -lactamases (ESBL)-producing Esherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae in hospitals of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Material and Methods. To detect ESBL-production, 1 412 bacterial isolates obtained over a one year period (2008-2009) were analyzed using the double-disk synergy test, with and without clavulanic acid. Results. Hospitalaryacquired ESBL-producing E. coli and K. pneumoniae (31.8% and 35.3%) were isolated with higher prevalence that communityacquired isolates (14.4% and 0.0%) (p
