We determined minimum inhibitory concentrations of rifampicin, nitrofurantoin, amoxicillinclavulanic acid, and cefdinir, plus a combination of amoxicillinclavulanic acid and cefdinir by broth microdilution for mainly wound isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. E. coli and K. pneumoniae susceptibilities increased by combining amoxicillinclavulanic acid and cefdinir.
