A carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii clinical isolate belonging to European clone II and sequence type 2 was recovered from a patient in the Son Espases hospital in Mallorca, Spain. Genetic analysis showed the presence of the blaOXA-23 gene in association with the widely disseminated transposon Tn2006. This is the first reported identification of A. baumannii carrying blaOXA-23 in Spain. Copyright © 2013, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.
