Recently, this Gram-negative bacilli has shown resistance to the most of available antibiotics followed by emergence of multiple (MDR) and extensive drug resistance (XDR) strains. This has partly been due to extensive use of broad spectrum antibiotics especially in burned patients. Aminoglycoside used with beta- lactam antibiotics commonly.
