[en] Over a 16-month period, Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from 102 patients admitted to a university hospital in Liege (Belgium) produced extended-spectrum beta-lactamases. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of genome macrorestriction patterns with XbaI and antibiotic susceptibility patterns subdivided 39 isolates into eight clonally related groups. Two of them were implicated in the course of this outbreak. They were responsible for successive waves of infection or colonization in different wards of the hospital while the others were encountered sporadically. A beta-lactamase with an isoelectric point of 7.6 and consistent with type SHV-2 characterized all nine isolates chosen among both major groups.
