Abstract

An extended-spectrum β-lactamase (CTX-M-15 type)-producing Escherichia coli persisted in the intestinal tract for > 5 months in a pediatric patient after cord blood stem-cell transplantation and caused 2 episodes of sepsis. The blaCTX-M-15 is carried by a large plasmid of approximately 130 kb in size. The prolonged shedding of the highly resistant E. coli posed a great challenge to infection control and public health.
