Abstract

CTX-M-15 -lactamase-producing serotype K1 was isolated from a patient with fatal upper urinary tract infection (UTI) complicated by sepsis caused by serotype K2. Transfer of a CTX-M-15 -lactamase plasmid from the K1 to the K2 strain was observed. However, plasmid acquisition by the K2 strain did not occur , suggesting that the K1 strain might not have contributed directly to the upper UTI. In addition, effects of K serotypes and plasmid acquisition on serum resistance were examined.
