Recently, a blaNDM-9 and mcr-1 co-harboring E. coli ST 617 isolate was identified from an asymptomatic carrier in Korea. An 81-year-old female was admitted to a university hospital for aortic cardiac valve repair surgery. Following surgery, she was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for three days, and carbapenem-resistant E. coli YMC/2017/02/MS631 was isolated from a surveillance culture (rectal swab). Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) for colistin was not performed at that time. Upon retrospective study, further AST revealed resistance to all tested antibiotics, including meropenem, imipenem, ceftazidime-avibactam, amikacin, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and colistin, with the exception of tigecycline. Whole genome sequencing analyses showed that this strain belonged to the ST617 serotype O89/162: H10 and harbored three β-lactamase genes (blaTEM-1B, blaCTX-M-55, blaNDM-9), mcr-1, and 14 other resistance genes. Seven plasmid replicon types (IncB, IncFII, IncI2, IncN, IncY, IncR, IncX1) were identified. Horizontal transfer of blaNDM-9 and mcr-1 from donor cells to the recipient E. coli J53 has been observed. blaNDM-9 and mcr-1 were carried by IncB and IncI2 plasmids, respectively. To speculate on the incidence of this strain, routine rectal swab screening to identify asymptomatic carriers might be warranted, in addition to the screening of ICU patients.
