AbstractTwo patients with diabetes mellitus developed Klebsiella pneumoniae pyomyositis involving multiple muscles and other metastatic foci associated with bacteraemia. The cases are presented here, and the 22 cases of gram-negative pyomyositis reported previously in the literature are reviewed. As gram-positive cocci cause 99% of pyomyositis, it is postulated that the pathogenesis of pyomyositis may be associated with the ability of the bacteria to adhere to muscles by various cell surface adhesins that are not present in gram-negative bacilli. It is also postulated that a high serum glucose concentration may facilitate the growth and formation of the Klebsiella pneumoniae capsule, hence increasing its virulence and causing serious disseminated Klebsiella infections in diabetic patients.
