Abstract:

Carbapenemase producing carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriacea were almost non-existent till 1990s but nowadays they are routinely encountered in hospitals. KPC producing Klebsiella pneumoniae were the first to develop and occur commonly. Lately NDM producing Enterobacteriaceae have emerged. IMP and VIM genes in Carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaecae have started to emerge but the prevalence is low.
