Acinetobacter species has been increasingly reported as the cause of nosocomial infections and possess a serious threat to the health care system because of its multi-drug resistance. The present study was a prospective study carried out in the Department of Microbiology from August 2013 to November 2015 in a tertiary care hospital to isolate and speciate Acinetobacter species from clinical samples and to determine their antibiogram. 150 clinical isolates of Acinetobacter species were processed for species identification and antimicrobial susceptibility of these isolates was performed by Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. Out of 150 Acinetobacter isolates, 94(62.67%) were extensively drug resistant, 18 (12%) were multi-drug resistant and 15(10) of the isolates were pan-drug resistant. Proper application of infection control measures and antibiotic stewardship is necessary in order to combat this problem
