This finding indicated that gastrointestinal carriage is a abecess factor for liver abscess.

We hypothesized that hypervirulent K. Pyogenic liver abscess has become a health problem in Taiwanese society.

However, the extent of this problem has remained unclear because of the lack of a population-based study. We therefore performed a nationwide analysis of pyogenic liver abscess Community-Acquired Klebsiella pneumoniae Bacteremia: Global Differences in Clinical Patterns.

We initiated a worldwide collaborative study, including episodes of bacteremia, to elucidate the clinical patterns of Klebsiella pneumoniae.

Historically, community-acquired pneumonia has been consistently associated with K. Klebsiella pneumoniae—Induced Liver Abscesses, Germany.
