Abstract: Background: Acinetobacter baumanii /calcoaceticusinfections were important for patients. Objective: the objective of this paper to determine the level of resistance to the widely used antibiotics in clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumanii /calcoaceticus 40 isolates were collected from special hospital in Muğla and recorded at specimens. Results: The resistance rates for, Ampicillin- Sulbactam, Imipenem, Meropenem, Cefepime, Levofloxacin and Ceftazadime were 95%. In our study, colistin was the lowest resistance antibiotics with12, 5%. In our study, 38 isolates showed seven to ten antibiotic resistance. But only two isolates showed no antibiotic resistance any of the antibiotics isolted from urine and ear cultures. Conclusion: Resistance rates of Acinetobacter baumanii /calcoaceticus complex isolates to were tigecyline and colistin very low and the rate of resistant Acinetobacter baumanii /calcoaceticus complex to Ampicillin/Sulbactam, Imipenem, Meropenem, Cefepime, Levofloxacin and Ceftazadime was significant. It would be a good idea to consider surveillance of antibiotic usage and restriction of using broad spectrum antibiotics before development of resistance to these agents.
