Open Forum Infect Dis. 2018 Mar 23;5(4):ofy064. doi: 10.1093/ofid/ofy064. eCollection 2018 Apr.


In the era of antibiotic resistance, alternative treatment options for multidrug-resistant bacterial infections are being explored. We present a case of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infection treated with bacteriophages. Clinical trials are needed to further investigate bacteriophage therapy as an option to treat multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
