Gram‐negative bacilli are an important cause of infection in healthcare and community settings. Antimicrobial resistance, including resistance to multiple antimicrobial classes, is an ongoing problem among gram‐negative bacilli. This synopsis reviews the incidence of multidrug resistance among gram‐negative bacilli in the United States and describes emerging issues in their epidemiology.
