Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil (M.R. Fernandes, F.P. Sellera, Q. Moura, M.P.N. Carvalho, L. Cerdeira, N. Lincopan); Centro Universitário Monte Serrat, Santos, São Paulo (P.N. Rosato)

We recovered VIM-2 carbapenemase-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from an infected dog, its owner, and the domestic environment. Genomic investigation revealed household transmission of the high-risk hospital clone sequence type 233 in the human–animal–environment interface. Results suggest zooanthroponotic transmission of VIM-2–producing P. aeruginosa in the household following the patient’s hospital discharge.

Recuperamos VIM-2 cepas de PAE productoras de carbapenemasas de un perro infectado, su dueño y el entorno doméstico. La investigación genómica reveló la transmisión domiciliaria de la secuencia clon hospitalaria de alto riesgo tipo 233 en la interfaz humano-animal-ambiente.

Los resultados sugieren la transmisión zooantroprópica de P.AE productora de VIM-2 en el hogar después del alta hospitalaria del paciente.
