A total of 1896 isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa resistant to aminoglycosides and isolated during the period 1983-1989 in two Belgian general hospitals were included in this study. The most frequently encountered O serotypes were O4, O11, O12 and non-typable isolates. The majority of the isolates showed resistance to extended spectrum beta-lactam antibiotics (cefotaxime, ceftriaxone and cefepime). However, a low degree of resistance was found for ceftazidime. By contrast, amikacin and isepamicin, remained active on a significant number of aminoglycoside resistant isolates. In both hospita…
