Carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae is increasing. Most of these bacteria are involved in nosocomial and systemic infection. This issue is a serious challenge in the treatment of infectious diseases because these bacteria are resistant to almost all kind of antibiotics and the mortality either morbidity due to infection of these bacteria are high. the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and susceptibility profiles of K. pneumoniae resistant to carbapenem from January-June 2011 at sanglah hospital. antimicrobial susceptibility of all isolates was performed by disk diffusion methods and interpreted by Clinical and Laboratory Standart Institute (CLSI) 2011. A total of 110 clinical isolates of K. pneumonia were found. About 10.9% (12/110) isolates of K. pneumoiae resistant to carbapenem. most isolates of K. pneumoia resistance to carbapenem were obtained from surgery department 33.3% (4/12) and most collected from urine specimens 33.3 (4/12). Further study to confirm phenotype and genotype is needed for early detection of Klebsiella pneumoiae resistance to carbapenem.
