Determination of suitable antibiotics in treatment of Acinetobacter infections is through the hospital ascertaining the resistance state to bacteria causing the problem. In this study, the evaluation of antibiotics sensitivity of Acinetobacter strains isolated as infection factor in patients hospitalized in intensive care units is aimed. Methods: Acinetobacter strains isolated from the samples of patients hospitalized in the 2nd and 3rd Stage adult intensive care units of a province in in

The antibiotics which the factors were most sensitive were cholistin (66,1%) gentamicin (22,4%) and trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole (18,2%). Conclusion: We face increasing resistance ratios in Acinetobacter strains. Necessary precautions should be taken for this.
