Abstract

This is a case report of a Ukrainian war-injured patient who was colonised/infected with nine different carbapenemase-producing organisms (CPO). The patient was initially treated in Ukraine. After two months he was admitted to a Danish hospital where he underwent extensive surgery and received broad-spectrum antibiotics. In screening and clinical samples, nine different CPO were cultured which in combination were untreatable with antibiotics. To our knowledge, this is the first patient in Denmark with such a high number of different CPO. This may be a sign that we are entering a postantibiotic era.
