Abstract :

The pathogenicity of Klebsiella pneumoniae is discussed in this paper in both community and hospital settings. The purpose of this study is to determine the most prevalent cause of hospital-acquired pneumonia and K. pneumoniae risk factors. Multiple locations, including the brain, urinary tract, circulation, wounds, and operative sites, are infected by Klebsiella species. People with pre-existing medical issues are more susceptible to these illnesses. K. ppneumoniae is becoming a major pathogen of concern on a global scale because of the increasing prevalence of carbapenem resistant strains and hyper-virulent. It is crucial to comprehend the risk factors and available therapeutic options for multidrug-resistant Klebsiella infections. This study focuses on K. pneumoniae infections, pathogenicity, risk factors, and prevention strategies against pneumonial infections to emphasize serious threat posed by this bacteria and the existing alternatives for treating Klebsiella-related disorders. It is essential to have a better understanding of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of K. pneumoniae infections as they become increasingly challenging to treat due to antibiotic resistance and hypervirulent forms of the bacteria.
