In the article titled “Association between Virulence Factors and Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Compared to Nonproducing Isolates” [1], there were errors, which should be corrected as follows:(i)In the Results section, “a total of twenty-four different virulence profiles were observed among the tested isolates,” should be “a total of twenty-three different virulence profiles were observed among the tested isolates.”(ii)In the Discussion section, “analysis of virulence factors combination has brought out 23 different virulence profiles including 2 to 8 virulence factors (Table ),” should be “analysis of virulence factors combination has brought out 23 different virulence profiles including 2 to 9 virulence factors (Table ).”(iii)In the eighteenth row of Table , “Biofilm-serum resistant-haemagglutination-lipase-α-hemolysis-BssS-fimH-iss” should be corrected to “Biofilm-serum resistant-haemagglutination-hypermucoviscosity-lipase-α-hemolysis-BssS-fimH-iss.” The correct table is shown as follows:
