Acinetobacter species


Acinetobacter species are common environmental bacteria. They are non-fermenting, oxidase-negative, strictly aerobic bacteria and can be isolated from soil, water, and the skin of approximately 25% of the population. They are considered opportunistic pathogens and will often cause nosocomial infections and supra-infection. Acinetobacter species can cause pneumonia in hospitalized patients and will readily cause skin infections when already open wounds come into contact with soil.
