Epidemiological patterns of Klebsiella colonization and infection in an intensive care ward

, : Epidemiological patterns of Klebsiella colonization and infection in an intensive care ward. Journal of Hygiene 80(2): 295-300

Twenty-four percent of 2315 patients admitted to the intensive care unit of St. Thomas's Hospital [London, England] in the 4 yr period from Nov. 1969 became colonized or infected with Klebsiella sp. Capsular typing of 986 Klebsiella isolates from 551 patients showed that there were 695 patient-isolates, mostly derived from the respiratory tract. Capsular types 47 and 21 were the commonest types and together accounted for 19.9% of patient-isolates. The 14 commonest types accounted for 47.3% of all patient-isolates, and all these strains showed clustering, strongly suggesting a changing common source, cross infection or both.
