Abstract

Spread of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae has been identified as an issue of serious worldwide concern from clinical and public health perspectives. Italy is an country endemic for and a reservoir of K. pneumoniae carbapenemases (KPC). Nineteen isolates of CR-Kp from 16 different patients admitted in two hospital of Palermo in the period April-May 2014 were studied. Seven of 16 isolates belonged to ST307, six to ST258 and three to ST273. All isolates were KPC-3 producers. Our data emphasize the increasing difficulties in controlling the spread of KPC-Kp
