Review on Clinical Diseases Caused by Klebsiella
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Klebsiella are one among the group of gram negative rod shaped bacilli of family Enterobacteriaceae. Klebsiella are normal inhabitants of the intestinal tract of humans, animals, and environment. Klebsiella pneumoniae subspecies pneumoniae a most common gram negative lactose fermenting non motile, aerobic rod shaped bacilli, is second most common next to E. coli. They are facultative anaerobic bacterial vegetation of digestive tract of man and normal medical clinic procured pathogen, causing urinary tract contamination, nosocomial pneumonia and intra-stomach disease. Disease brought about by multidrug safe gram negative bacilli that produce broadened range beta-lactamase (ESBL) proteins have been accounted for with expanding recurrence in escalated care units related with noteworthy grimness and mortality.
