Klebsiella pneumoniae is a common cause of infections in the health care setting. This work supports a paradigm for K. pneumoniae pathogenesis where the accessory genome, composed of genes present in some but not all isolates, influences whether a strain causes infection or asymptomatic colonization, after accounting for patient-level factors. Identification of patients at high risk of infection could allow interventions to prevent or rapidly treat K. pneumoniae infections.
