Özet

Objective: Resistant Gram-negative bacteria isolated from health-related infections are a worldwide problem. Increasing Frequency of infections particularly caused by Enterobacteriaceae producing expanded spectrum beta lactamase, leads to the use of more carbapenem group antibiotics which, in turn, leads to bacterial resistance. In this study, we aimed to evaluate carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumaniae (K. pneumoniae) isolates, the mechanisms causing this resistance and the clonal relationship between these isolates.
