Abstract:

Klebsiella pneumoniae is a common organism causing bronchopneumonia and is a known pathogen in non-healing diabetic foot infections. KPC strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae from Pus and Sputum samples were isolated in Thanjavur Medical College from March to April 2018 which show resistance to beta lactam antibiotics, beta lactamase inhibitors and Carbapenems and confirmed the responsible blaKPC gene by PCR. The study signifies the importance of rational usage of antibiotics.
