Invasive Liver Abscess Syndrome Caused by Carbapenem-Resistant Hypervirulent Klebsiella Pneumoniae: a Case Report by Hong Q. Ren, Qian Zhao, Wen Yang, Jiao Jiang, Ai S. Fu, Yan L. Ge

Background: Carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae (CR-hvKP) causes fewer infections, and it causes invasive Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess syndrome (IKLAS) that can lead to a poor prognosis for patients.
Methods: Next-generation sequencing (NGS), sputum culture, drug sensitivity test, and other examination methods can detect the specific situation of pathogens in advance.
Results: The patient was determined to have CR-hvKP infection after NGS, sputum culture, and drug sensitivity test, and improved after treatment.
Conclusions: When antibiotics are applied in the presence of infection but symptoms do not improve, relevant laboratory or other tests should be performed promptly, and the selection of appropriate antibiotics may improve the survival rate of patients.
