    Background: The study conducted to determine resistant and virulent genes in multi drug resistance Acinetobacter baumannii. Aim: A. baumannii has emerged as an important human pathogen in hospitalized patients, and leads to increased infection with significant morbidity and mortality. The study aimed to confirm the presence of resistance and virulent genes in multidrug resistance strains of A. baumannii. Methods: The multidrug resistance was screened for the several strains of A. baumannii and two strains Aba03 and 04 was used for screening the marker presence of gyrA, blaOXA-51, ISAba1-A, ampC-AB and strB in the genome using polymerase chain reaction. Results and Discussion: A. baumannii found to be positive for the marker genes gyrA, blaOXA-51, ISAba1-A and ampC-AB and negative for strB gene in both the strains. Conclusion: This report highlights the functions of novel resistant and virulent determinants, in bringing drug resistance in A. baumannii.
