Abstract: The virulence markers and the antimicrobial resistance profile of 78 Escherichia coli isolates causing obstetric infections accompanied or not by sepsis were studied. Adhesion-related virulence factors were the most prevalent. Low rates of resistance to the antimicrobial agents used as first line therapy suggest their correct implementation in stewardship guidelines.
