Morganella

Morganella

 [mor-gah-nel´ah]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. The single species is M. morga´nii, which is a primary cause of urinary tract infections and is an opportunistic pathogen, causing secondary infections of the respiratory tract, blood, and wounds.

NDM-1 was reported from different hospitals in the UK in Morganella morganii, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Providencia, Klebsiella pneumonia and Escherichia coli.4,5 It was initially discovered in 2008 in a Swedish patient of Indian origin, but now has claimed its presence globally including India and Pakistan.5,6 United Kingdom, Canada, France, China, Japan, Oman, Iraq, Bangladesh and United States are one of the few other countries from where bla NDM-1 has been reported.
Unfortunately, his condition gradually deteriorated again at the end of the treatment, because of catheter-related bacteremia due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis, then nosocomial pneumonia due to Morganella morganii.

(2) For Enterobacter, Serratia, Citrobacter freundii, Proteus vulgaris, Providencia and Morganella species, the Clinical Microbiologist may exercise discretion regarding the need for further testing if resistance is likely to be due to a combination of AmpC de-repression and porin deficiency (eg, when there is no co-resistance to other antibiotic classes and resistance develops progressively during antimicrobial therapy).
