Carbapenemase-producing, or carbapenem-resistant, Enterobacteriaceae are an emerging threat to human and animal health because they are resistant to many of the last-line antimicrobials available for treatment of infection. The aim of this study was to analyse the antimicrobial resistance patterns and their encoding genes of Proteus mirabilis isolated in Constantine, Algeria.
