Resumen

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is an opportunistic pathogen, often associated with nosocomial infections. Ten S. maltophilia were isolated from clinical samples during the period January 2021 and June 2022. Eight (80%) patients had cancer as a background disease and 2 patients had coronavirus disease 2019. A fatal outcome was recorded in 4 cases (40% of patients). All the isolates were susceptible to minocycline and levofloxacin. Trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole and ceftazidime resistance rates were 20% and 40% respectively. Eight different patterns were observed by Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis, only two isolates being clonally identical. The isolation of S. maltophilia in clinical settings requires the implementation of infection prevention measures.
