Blood and surveillance cultures from an injured service member from Ukraine grew Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecium, and 3 distinct Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains. Isolates were nonsusceptible to most antibiotics and carried an array of antibiotic resistant genes, including carbapenemases (blaIMP-1, blaNDM-1, blaOXA-23, blaOXA-48, blaOXA-72) and 16S methyltransferases (armA and rmtB4).
