Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a colony of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria. This type of rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacteria causes pneumonia in humans. Species of Klebsiella possess a polysaccharide capsule by means of which they are divided into various types: types 1-3 contain the more pathogenic forms, with type 3 including K. pneumoniae. Other Klebsiellae are widely found in nature, also occurring harmlessly in the human intestine and occasionally the cause of urinary tract, wound or other infections. K . pneumoniae (originally known as Friedlander's Bacillus) gives rise to a form of pneumonia characterized by multiple cavitation of the lung.
