Klebsiella spp. – 11 new images in VetBact


Gram staining of Klebsiella pneumoniae subsp. pneumoniae, strain CCUG 225. The lengths of the scale bars are equivalent to 5 ┬Ám in both A and B. Image: Karl-Erik Johansson (BVF, SLU and Laila Eriksson (SVA).

We have now introduced new images and replaced old ones of Klebsiella pneumoniae subsp. pneumoniae and Klebsiella oxytoca in VetBact. The former species may cause mastitis in cows, urinary tract infections in dogs and pneumonia in calves and foals. The latter species is an opportunist, which may cause diarrhea, bacteremia and mastitis in cattle.

We have also added more information (for instance carbohydrate fermentation schemes) on the bacterial pages for K. pneumoniae subsp. pneumoniae and K. oxytoca.
