The Journal of Hospital Infection
J J EarnshawB T Thom

Abstract

In a 12 week period five patients developed gentamicin-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with the same endoscope. The organism was subsequently cultured from the endoscopic apparatus. The cases are discussed and the importance of adequate disinfection of endoscopes is re-iterated.
