Prognosis of urinary tract infection caused by KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae: the impact of inappropriate empirical treatment

  04 July 2019

There is scarce information on the prognosis of urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by KPC carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (KPC-Kp).

This is a retrospective observational study of hospitalized patients with urinary tract infections due to K. pneumoniae. We explored clinical failure at day 21 and 30-day all-cause mortality using different models of adjusted analysis. 

KPC-Kp UTI is associated with higher clinical failure and may be due to an increase in inappropriate empirical treatment.
