Faecal microbiota transplantation for eradication of co-infection with Clostridioides difficile and extensively drug-resistant KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Clostridioides difficile infection may be complicated by co-infection with other pathogens. We here describe the successful use of faecal microbiota transplantation to eradicate concomitant C. difficile and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae. Donor microbiota efficiently engrafted in the patient, and a donor-like microbial assemblage persisted in the patient during six months follow-up. The report explores the potential for the donor microbiota to eradicate and replace multi-resistant microorganisms.
