Treatment of a Klebsiella pneumoniae KPC cellulitis and gut decolonization with ceftazidime/avibactam in a migrant from Libya.
J Chemother. 2018 May; 30(3):183-184.JC

Abstract

KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (KPC-Kp) is nowadays a global concern. Ceftazidime/avibactam is the most promising novel antibiotic combination available at the moment. We describe the case of a migrant with no risk factors for an infection due to multidrug resistant bacteria. He suffered from a KPC-Kp cellulitis and was treated with a ceftazidime/avibactam-meropenem-fosfomycin combination that not only eradicated the infection but also decontaminated his gut. Ceftazidime/avibactam-based treatment can be useful also in decontamination procedures.
