Reports of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Africa remain rare and assess mostly blaOXA-48-producing isolates from Mediterranean countries and South Africa. We identified blaNDM-7-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Gabon in 2016. The isolates contained blaNDM-7 IncX3 plasmids that were unusual and similar to the one described in a colistin-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae SZ04 isolate from China.
