Three ertapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae carrying blaKPC-2 were isolated from a single patient in Nebraska over a span of 5 months. A comparative analysis of the genetic relatedness of these isolates was investigated using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, multilocus sequence typing, and whole genome mapping.
