Résumé :

We report here the description of a non-O1/non-O139 Vibrio cholerae producing both VIM-1 and VIM-4 carbapenemases. It was isolated from a Yellow-legged gull in the South of France. The blaVIM genes were part of a class 1 integron structure located in an IncA/C plasmid. This study emphasizes the presence of carbapenemase genes in wildlife microbiota.
