Abstract

We describe the outbreak of a pan-susceptible Klebsiella pneumoniae strain in a neonatal intensive care unit. A total of 7 neonates developed bacteraemia (37% attack rate), of whom 3 died (43% case fatality rate). A birth weight < 1500 g was the only statistically significant risk factor. Despite an extensive environmental investigation, the source was not identified.
