Biochemical classification of Klebsiella correlated with the severity of the associated disease.

Abstract

The biochemical classification of the Klebsiella proposed by Cowan, Steel, Shaw, and Duguid (1960) has been applied to 50 strains isolated as the pure or predominant growth from sputum, and Klebsiella species have been correlated with the severity of the chest infection in the patient. A modification in nomenclature is suggested.
