Abstract: Two hundred twenty-one isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii and 15 of Acinetobacter genospecies 3 (AG3) were consecutively collected in a 30-day period during the nationwide project GEIH-Ab2000. Nosocomial acquisition (P = 0.01), intensive care unit admission (P = 0.02), and antibiotic pressure (P = 0.03) were observed to be lower in the AG3 group. AG3 isolates were more frequently implied in wound infections (P = 0.05), while A. baumannii tended to be recovered from respiratory samples (P = 0.08). To our knowledge, this is the first report analyzing the clinical differences among Acinetobacter genospecies, with our findings suggesting that clinical features of AG3 may not be equivalent to those traditionally described for A. baumannii
