To compare the characteristics of Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscesses (KPLA) in diabetic patients with different levels of glycaemic control. The institutional review board approved this retrospective study. A total of 221 patients with KPLA were included. Clinical features of KPLA were compared. We divided the 120 diabetic patients with KPLA into three subgroups based on haemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) concentration (good, HbA1C ≤ 7.0 %; suboptimal, 7.0 % < HbA1C ≤ 9.0 %; poor, HbA1C > 9.0 %).
