A patient with a trauma-related left tibial infection associated with XDR Acinetobacter baumannii and MDR Klebsiella pneumoniae was treated with bacteriophages and antibiotics.
Tissue healing and eradication of positive cultures were rapidly observed.
As a result, the patient's leg did not have to be amputated and he is undergoing rehabilitation.
