In recent years, () has emerged as the predominant cause of pyogenic liver abscess in Asia. - as the causative microorganism in other visceral organ abscesses-is less described. In this study, we seeked to describe the clinical characteristics of visceral organ abscesses in our institution and evaluated the prescription practices of physicians with regard to antibiotic therapy.

The emerging pks-positive (pks ) strains have aroused great public concern recently. Colibactin, encoded by pks gene cluster, has been reported to be involved in DNA damage and increased virulence. Li...
The bacterial pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae comprises several phylogenetic groups (Kp1 to Kp7), two of which (Kp5 and Kp7) have no taxonomic status. Here we show that group Kp5 is closely related to ...
The rapid and complex evolution of bacterial resistance mechanisms in Klebsiella pneumoniae producing extended-spectrum β-lactamases and carbapenemases in Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most sig...
Klebsiella pneumoniae-caused pneumonia is a risk factor for development of lung injury. However, the current clinical isolates of K. pneumoniae are mostly multidrug-resistance and thus must be address...
Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is a common pathogen associated with hospital acquired infections. The presence of virulence genes and antibiotic resistance genes are known risk factors for the ...
Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most common pathogens causing both community-onset and nosocomial infection. More worse, the emergency of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CR...
Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most common pathogens causing nosocomial infection. Recently, the emergency of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) had cause the clinical ...
Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important pathogen that frequently causes nosocomial community-acquired and infections, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, bloodstream infections, p...
An observational two-center case-control study exploring the clinical impact of double-carbapenem use in a population of critically il patients with severe carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella ...
This is a retrospective descriptive study on the clinical and microbiological features of Klebsiella Pneumoniae Necrotizing Fasciitis.
Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.
Gram-negative, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature. Both motile and non-motile strains exist. The species is closely related to KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE and is frequently associated with nosocomial infections
Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.
A disease caused by any of a number of species of protozoa in the genus LEISHMANIA. There are four major clinical types of this infection: cutaneous (Old and New World) (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS), diffuse cutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, DIFFUSE CUTANEOUS), mucocutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, MUCOCUTANEOUS), and visceral (LEISHMANIASIS, VISCERAL).
Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA.

Pneumonia (bronchopneumonia, lobar pneumonia and double pneumonia) is inflammation (swelling) of the tissue in one or both of your lungs. It is usually caused by an pneumococcal infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. However,...
