Depends: What was the specimen that was tested? Why was it tested? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Depending on the specimen, what you described may be normal. ...Read more
Gram stain sputum- presence of few epithelial cells, moderate number of pus cells,few gram positive cocci in chain observed in smear
What does this in?
Sputum gram stain: Sputum gram stain testing is not done nearly as often as it once was, since we now know it usually isn't very helpful in diagnosis. The white blood cells (pus cells) suggest infection like bronchitis or pneumonia -- but it's usually possible to judge this just by appearance of the sputum (e.g., yellow or green mucus). Gram pos cocci could be entirely normal bacteria. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

See below: Gram positive rods are a class of bacteria. The majority of bacteria involved in disease are either gram positive or negative and come in rod, cocci (grapes), or spirals. If the culture says it is gpr negative, then that means no gram positive rods were found. However, it may say other forms were found, including gnr. ...Read more
High vaginal swab result: scanty leucocytes & gram positive cocci, numerous gram positive bacilli, moderate epithelial cells . Result shows infection?
Not likely: Bacteria are part of the contents of the vaginal barrel. When infection is present due to bacteria there are usually large numbers of leucocytes and few epithelial cells. All told, however, test results are not always accurate, and best to discuss this with the doctor who ordered this to begin with. ...Read more
Sputum culture showed normal flora.gram stain showed mod.amt of gram positive and neg. bacilli and mod.amt of gram positive cocci.few wbc.concerns?
No.: From your description, it sounds like the diagnosis was normal flora present. The bacilli and cocci with few WBCs are just describing that. Normal flora is a mixed population like that described. When one has an infection, the causative organism will predominate and will likely be the only thing present. There will also usually be numerous WBCs as these are your cells that fight infection. ...Read more
Vaginal swab result
direct smear: no trichomonas
gram stain : epithelial cells positive cocci and positive bacilli..Is it normal?
What does a Vaginal gram stain of many epithelial cells , moderate WBCs seen, many gram positive rods, & moderate gram positive cocci indicate?

What does Gram positive cocci in chains, Moderate WBC and Normal upper respiratory flora in sputum mean?
Inflammation: A sputum gram stain/ culture that demonstrates what you mention suggests that there is no "pathologic" bacteria, or disease causing bacteria but something is causing inflammation, as noted by the white blood cells. This doesn't mean that you have a bacterial infection though. Normal flora is just that, bacteria that you commonly find in the upper respiratory tract(everything above the rib cage) ...Read more
Hello! In a sputum test, what do MODERATE GRAM POSITIVE COCCI, RARE GRAM POSITIVE RODS, FEW GRAM NEGATIVE RODS mean? My wife has CVID and is very ill.
Culture/Gram's stain: Depends upon whether these were from the culture or the stain of some clinical material, where the culture was obtained from, and why. This may be an entirely inconsequential result or possibly represent severe illness, but would need far more info to say. Discuss this with the doctor who cultured you. If this was from your tonsil it is probably Strep and you should have been treated. Get better. ...Read more
Hematuria: RBC in the urine could be either from the kidneys or the bladder(cystitis). Endothelial damage in the kidney can result in both hematuria and proteinuria. Protein content should be quanitifed to better understand its pathology,(Nephriti/Nephrotic). RBC's in the urine can accompany protein in the urine if the kidneys are injured. Protein will not be detected as a direct result of RBC in the urine ...Read more
Gram stain: The gram stain has been used for a long time to classify bacteria according to the chemistry of their cell walls (and hence whether they are gram positive or negative.) Cell shape and growth characteristic are also useful in grouping bacteria until more full speciation information becomes available. The gram stain is fast, reasonably reproducible by trained personnel and the groupings useful 4 rx ...Read more
