Abstract

A 65-year-old man developed severe septic shock during thrombolytic treatment with urokinase for pulmonary thromboembolism associated with deep venous thrombosis of the right lower limb. Blood cultures were positive for Klebsiella pneumoniae and treatment was successful only when the antibiotics were infused via the same route as the urokinase.
