  1. GyrA S91F and D95G/A amino acid substitutions were found in 20 ciprofloxacin resistant isolates. Of the 20 isolates, 14 had an additional ParC E91G substitution. Two ciprofloxacin susceptible isolates lacked the QRDR mutations associated with fluoroquinolone resistance
  2. a-ciprofloxacin susceptible
