Abstract: A carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli isolate (sequence type 448 [ST448]) was recovered from a urine culture of a female patient with no recent record of traveling. PCR screening identified the presence of blaNDM-5, blaTEM-1, blaOXA-1, blaCMY-42, and rmtB. blaNDM-5 was carried in a conjugative IncFII-type plasmid (90 kb) together with blaTEM-1 and rmtB. The genetic environment of blaNDM-5 showed a structure similar to those of pMC-NDM and pGUE-NDM, identified in Poland and France in E. coli of African and Indian origin, respectively.
