Klebsiella pneumoniae can cause community-acquired and hospital-acquired infection. It increases morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients. We present a case of invasive Klebsiella pneumoniae in poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, who ended up having a metastatic spread of Klebsiella pneumoniae involving the liver, lungs, kidneys, brain, and muscle.
