Successful treatment of ceftazidime/avibactam combined with aztreonam in the NDM-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae bloodstream and intestinal infections in a NK/T lymphoma patient with agranulocytosis during autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: a case report

We described a patient diagnosed with NK/T cell lymphoma who underwent autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in the hematology department. The patient developed severe infection after ASCT. Blood and stool cultures showed carbapenem-resistantK. pneumoniae. Blood sample was detected as NDM-producingK. pneumoniae. We successfully treated this infection with CAZ/AVI and ATM.
