Abstract

Here, we report the genome sequence of a blaNDM-1-positive Klebsiella pneumoniae AATZP isolate cultured from a perirectal surveillance swab collected upon admission of a patient to the NIH Clinical Center in 2014. Genome sequencing of this isolate revealed three plasmids, including one carrying the blaNDM-1 gene encoding resistance to carbapenems.
