Answer

Klebsiellae UTIs [9] are clinically indistinguishable from UTIs caused by other common organisms.

Clinical features include frequency, urgency, dysuria, hesitancy, low back pain, and suprapubic discomfort. Systemic symptoms such as fever and chills are usually indicative of a concomitant pyelonephritis or prostatitis.
