  • Bartholin's abscess caused by hypermucoviscous Klebsiella pneumoniae JOURNAL OF MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY Pinsky, B. A., Baron, E. J., Janda, J. M., Banaei, N. 2009; 58 (5): 671-673


    Klebsiella pneumoniae serogroups displaying the hypermucoviscosity phenotype are associated with a distinct clinical syndrome characterized by liver abscesses, bacteraemia and metastatic lesions. We describe here what we believe to be the first reported case of hypermucoviscous K. pneumoniae causing a superficial Bartholin's abscess in the absence of systemic involvement.
