The emergence of carbapemen resistant K. pneumoniae (CRKP) is becoming a significant health challenge. Infections caused by CRKP have limited treatment options and have been associated with high mortality rates. Our study aimed to investigate the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern, determine the antimicrobial activity of tigecycline and colistin as well as detecting the presence of colistin resistance among CRKP isolates in Alexandria, Egypt. This study included 139 CRKP isolates collected… Expand
