Summary of "Intra-hospital acquisition of colonization and infection by Klebsiella pneumoniae strains producing carbapenemases and carriage evolution: A longitudinal analysis in an Italian teaching hospital from January 2017 to August 2019."

We gave an updated picture (1/1/2017-31/08/2019) of the frequency of carbapenemase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (CPKP) in surveillance rectal swabs (SRS) and in clinical samples (CS) of patients admitted to a tertiary level hospital, focusing on longitudinal evolution of CPKP detected in SRS and on colistin resistant strains.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.

Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.

INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.

A granulomatous disease caused by KLEBSIELLA RHINOSCLEROMATIS infection. Despite its name, this disease is not limited to the nose and NASOPHARYNX but may affect any part of the RESPIRATORY TRACT, sometimes with extension to the lip and the skin.
