Enterobacter aerogenes

General Susceptibility

  • Carbapenem is preferred empirically until susceptibility known. Cefepime is acceptable for mild-moderate urinary infections.

  • Definitive therapy (if susceptible): fluoroquinolone, cefepime if mild-moderate infection, ceftriaxone if mild-moderate infection that only requires a short course.

  • Beware of penicillis and cephalosporins (other than cefepime) for severe infections due to inducible resistance.
