Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteraemia epidemiology: resistance profiles and clinical outcome of King Fahad Medical City isolates, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is the second leading cause of community-acquired and hospital-acquired gram-negative bloodstream infection (BSI). This study aimed to assess the epidemiological and microbial-resistance characteristics and clinical factors associated with K. pneumoniae BSI in Saudi Arabia.
The impact of K. pneumoniae BSI was seen not only at the patient level, but also at the community level, and was related to multi-drug resistant infection. These findings provide a better understanding of microbial resistance and its association with patient clinical outcomes.
