clinical presentation of enteric fever: its changing pattern in kuwait.the clinical experience with enteric fever (1985-89) at a general hospital in kuwait is presented. there were 90 cases of typhoid and 10 cases of paratyphoid fever, with a mortality rate of 2%. typhoid complications of bowel perforation, haemorrhage or septic shock were present in 5% and abortion in 2%. neurological or psychiatric manifestations were a feature in 15%. most infections were imported (78%). despite rapid economic development, enteric fever may still be acquired locally but less fre ...19911942214
plasmid-mediated multidrug resistance in salmonella typhi in kuwait.multidrug resistant salmonella typhi infection is common in kuwait. between january 1993 and december 1994, 266 strains of s. typhi were isolated from blood of suspected typhoid fever cases attending the infectious disease hospital, kuwait. of these, 205 strains were isolated from patients from the indian sub-continent, 105 (45%) of which showed resistance to one or more drugs; 91 of these resistant strains showed resistance to the oral antimicrobials ampicillin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline an ...19968765450
emergence of multidrug-resistant salmonella spp. and isolates with reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin in kuwait and the united arab emirates.kuwait and united arab emirates (uae) are 2 countries with worldwide significance in the context of global epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. the extent of drug resistance in salmonella spp. isolated from these countries was investigated by determining their susceptibility to 9 antibiotics using the e-test method. amikacin, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, and gentamicin had excellent activities against all kuwait and uae isolates with mic(90)s ranging between 0.056 and 4.5 microg/ ...200817931817
emergence of ctx-m-15 type extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing salmonella spp. in kuwait and the united arab emirates.cephalosporins are major antimicrobials used to treat serious salmonella infections. however, their effectiveness is being compromised by the emergence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (esbls). the genetic determinants encoding esbl in salmonella spp. isolated from patients in kuwait and united arab emirates (uae) were studied over a 2 year period. out of a total of 407 isolates, 116 isolates possessed the resistance phenotypes consistent with possible esbl production. of these, 69 (59.5 %) ...200818566147
salmonella enterica serotype typhi in kuwait and its reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin.salmonella enterica serotype typhi continues to be an important public health problem in kuwait. analysis of the isolates from 163 patients, collected between 1995 and 2003, showed that the majority were from patients from the indian sub-continent, including 45 from bangladesh, 38 from india and 30 from pakistan. fifty-four of the strains showed multiple antibiotic resistance (mdr). twenty-five strains were from kuwaitis, with 15 aged <18 years. bacteriophage typing of 20 isolates from kuwaitis ...200818606582
ciprofloxacin-resistant salmonella enterica serovar typhi from kuwait with novel mutations in gyra and parc genes.blood isolates of salmonella enterica serovar typhi from two recently returned bangladeshi patients in kuwait were ciprofloxacin resistant, with ciprofloxacin mics of 12 mg/liter for both isolates. both isolates had three novel gyra mutations (55-leu-->trp, 87-asp-->ala, and 106-gln-->arg) and three novel parc mutations (84-glu-->lys, 106-trp-->gly, and 128-tyr-->asp).200918971360
