Assist??ncia T??cnica da PDTIS-FiocruzBacteria producing Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemases (KPCs) are rapidly emerging as a cause of multidrug-resistant infections worldwide. KPCs enzyme are plasmid-borne and can accumulate and transfer resistance determinants to other classes of antibiotics.We report two cases of KPC-2 carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from Cystic Fibrosis patients
