Abstract

Klebsiella pneumoniae primary liver abscess (KPLA) is an emerging disease that is associated with distant septic complications. We report the first case of KPLA associated with infective endocarditis. The K. pneumoniae strain was a hypermucoid K2 serotype carrying the rmpA virulence-associated gene.
