Abstract

Four Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from children hospitalized over 10 months in an intensive care unit in a children’s teaching hospital in Poland were analyzed. All of the isolates belonged to a single pulsotype and sequence type (ST) 11, and produced the KPC-2 carbapenemase and extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) CTX-M-15. They were resistant to a variety of antimicrobials, and their β-lactam resistance patterns were typical for KPC producers. This is one of few cases of identification of KPC (or carbapenemase)-producing K. pneumoniae in a pediatric center in Poland.
