Rising resistance and spread of K. pneumoniae strains, create great concerns in treating sepsis patients due to high incidence of mortality and morbidity. The current study is a case of a 20-year-old male with sepsis and bilateral lung lesions infected with Multi-Drug Resistant (MDR) carbapenemase producing K. pneumoniae (KPC) showing resistance to carbapenem and polymyxin. Based on sensitivity report, patient was put on antibiotic adjuvant: Elores (ceftriaxone, sulbactam, disodium edetate) along with fluconazole for 10 days. Elores was instituted with remarkable recovery and patient was discharged.
