Abstract

INTRODUCTION — Klebsiella pneumoniae can produce infection at a variety of sites, with the risk being increased in patients with impaired host defenses (eg, diabetes mellitus, alcoholism, malignancy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and glucocorticoid therapy). K. pneumoniae is also associated with a community-acquired primary invasive liver abscess syndrome. In addition to liver abscess, some patients develop metastatic infection at other sites.
