Özet

Background: Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important nosocomial pathogen that can lead to high morbidity and mortality. ESBL and carbapenamase producing strains may cause epidemic situations. The aim of our study was to investigate the molecular epidemiology and clonal relationship between carbapenem resistant K. pneumoniae strains isolated from our hospital during a three month period.
