Detection of Acinetobacter baumannii in human head and body lice from Ethiopia and identification of new genotypes

Abstract :

Acinetobacter baumannii has previously been detected and genotyped in human body lice. The objectives of this study were to determine the presence of this bacterium in head and body lice collected from healthy individuals in Ethiopia by molecular methods and to characterize the genotype.Methods Human lice from locations at different altitudes in Ethiopia were screened for the presence of Acinetobacter sp by targeting the rpoB gene. Acinetobacter baumannii was detected and genotyped using recA PCR amplification. Results A total of 115 head and 109 body lice were collected from 134 healthy individuals. Acinetobacter sp were found in 54 head (47%) and 77 body (71%) lice. The recA gene was sequenced for 60 of the Acinetobacter sp and 67% were positive for A. baumannii; genotype 1 was retrieved the most frequently. Conclusion Our study is the first to show the presence of A. baumannii in human body lice, and also in head lice, in Ethiopia.
