Background/aim: beta-Lactamases are an important resistance mechanism in Acinetobacter baumannii. Pseudomonas extended-resistance (PER-1) type beta-lactamase-producing strains have been reported from various geographic locations; however, PER-1 type beta-lactamases from Turkish hospitals have not been investigated extensively. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of PER-1 type beta-lactamases in A. baumannii isolates in various regions of Turkey.
