Summary of "Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infection causing rupture of graft artery in solid organ recipients: Case report and review of literature."

Donor-derived bacterial infection is a rare cause of morbidity after solid organ transplantation (SOT) but associated with significant morbidity and mortality, deaths caused by carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) infection account for a considerable proportion of postoperation mortality rate in liver and kidney recipients. The arterial rupture as a result of fungal arteritis is occasionally described, while the rupture of graft vascular anastomosis after SOT due to donor-derived CRKP infection is rarely reported.
