    The increasing clinical incidence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a major global health care issue. Among MDR pathogens, Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) is one of the world's most dangerous superbugs; and becoming resistant to virtually every antibiotic available today. Published articles cited majorly from three sources were browsed using selected keywords. Screening technique was done based on article relevance, topic match and English language match. Duplication of findings was avoided. Prevalence of KP among isolates was determined in different study places and the most alarming figure was seen in study conducted in Nigeria (64.2%) followed by India (33.9%) and Denmark (17.4%). Based on our pooled data from a number of studies conducted at different part of the globe, antibiotic resistances among KP isolates were found to be 100% for Cephradin, 87.5% for Cefeclor, 84% for Tobramyci..
