Antibiotic-Resistant Infections and Treatment Challenges in the Immunocompromised Host.
Infect Dis Clin North Am. 2016 Jun;30(2):465-489
Authors: Dumford DM, Skalweit M
This article reviews antibiotic resistance and treatment of bacterial infections in the growing number of patients who are immunocompromised: solid organ transplant recipients, the neutropenic host, and persons with human immunodeficiency virus and AIDS. Specific mechanisms of resistance in both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as newer treatment options are addressed elsewhere, and are only briefly discussed in the context of the immunocompromised host.
