Abstract:

The emergence and spread of metallo-beta-lactamase-producing multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae are a serious public health threat. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of four K. pneumoniae strains isolated from Cairo, Egypt, including two panresistant colistin-resistant strains. Genome annotation indicated a number of virulence and resistance genes agreeing with observed phenotypes.
