Sequence type 258 (ST258) is the most widespread multidrug resistant (MDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae strain worldwide. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of two colistin-resistant MDR K. pneumoniae ST258 clinical strains isolated from hospital patients in Italy. These strains are resistant toβ-lactams, cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, macrolides, tetracyclines, carbapenems, and colistin.
