MDR Shigella sonnei in Spain: an ever-evolving emerging threat? 

  09 September 2022

Seven CTX-M-27-producing Shigella sonnei strains were isolated at the University Hospital Virgen del Rocío (Seville, Spain) microbiology service from October to November 2021.

This study confirms the emergence of CTX-M-27-producing S. sonnei (ST152) associated with MSM transmission in Spain, adding it to the Europe outbreak list and reinforcing the necessity of active surveillance and control of this high-risk clone.
