We describe the first IMP metallo-beta-lactamase in Aeromonas caviae: IMP-19, which differed from IMP-2 by a single amino acid change (Arg to Ala at position 38). bla(IMP-19) was found within a class 1 integron located on a 35-kb plasmid. This is also the first description of an IMP producer in France.
