Review question / Objective: What risk factors are associated with mortality in patients infected with carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae? Condition being studied: Some previous researches reported that patients infected with carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae have higher mortality rate compared with those with carbapenem-susceptible Klebsiella pneumoniae. Identification of risk factors for death caused by CRKP infection is crucial for early implementation of an appropriate

Many studies have attempted to identify all risk factors, However, studies investigating predictors of mortality in patients infected with CRKP produced inconsistent results. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the relation between possible risk factors and mortality inpatients with CRKP infection.
