Research: A rare but serious cause of community-acquired pneumonia

Community-acquired Acinetobacter baumannii (CA-Ab) is a rare but serious cause of community-acquired pneumonia in tropical regions of the world. CA-Ab infections predominantly affect individuals with various risk factors and has a high mortality rate (reported up to 64%). Deepening our understanding of the drivers of overwhelming CA-Ab infection will provide important insights into preventive and therapeutic strategies.
