Donor-derived bacterial infection is a recognized complication of solid organ transplantation. Patients admitted to the intensive care unit are increasingly exposed to infection with multidrug-resistant microorganisms. However, no specific recommendations are available about their suitability as donors. We report a case of donor-transmitted extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae infection in a liver recipient, and review the related literature.
