Proteus mirabilis: This is a potential cause of urinary tract infection, or if you have spillage of fecal contents into the peritoneum from a bowel perforation it may be part of the polymicrobial flora. There is nothing specific about the symptoms due to this gram-negative bacillus, one of the enterobacteriaceae.
