Abstract

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an unusual cause of brain abscess. Among the few cases of Klebsiella pneumoniae brain abscess that have been reported, most were associated with another underlying primary focus of infection. Endogenous endophthalmitis caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae is an infrequent but often devastating septic metastatic infection. We report a rare case of Klebsiella pneumoniae brain abscess and endophthalmitis after acute epiglottitis.
