Abstract: 
The present study aimed to describe the emergence of carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from clinical Lebanese patients. The resistance of these isolates is due to the presence of the plasmid-encoded bla VIM-2 gene. We provide its first description in Lebanon, as well as a description of disruption of the oprD gene by mutations.
