H number H00301
Name Klebsiella infection
Description Klebsiella is a gram-negative bacterium of Enterobacteriaceae with multidrug-resistance. They produce extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) enzymes, making themselves resistant to antibiotic drugs. Klebsiella pneumoniae can cause sepsis, conjunctivitis, urinary tract infections, and surgical site infections. Bloodstream infections with Klebsiella markedly increase the rates of treatment failure and death.
