Intrauterine Growth Restriction Stool Culture Positive For Listeria
Would stopping Culturell for a week cause pseudamonas in a gut grow more in an asymptomatic child who tested positive for pseudamonas growth in stool?
No effect: The presence or absence of OTC probiotics has little if any influence on whether or not a kid will acquire this germ. They had to ingest it for it to show up in the stool. If anything, probiotic strains coexist with this germ.They would never kill or prevent it from moving in. ...Read more
Is > 100, 000 col/ml staph coagulase negative beta lactamase positive in urine culture an infection or skin contamination?
Genitourinary tract: Enterococcus is found commonly is stool - and for some reason now it is turning up in a semen culture. This could mean one of two things: a) the culture was contaminated or b) if you have symptoms relating to the GU tract, you could have prostatitis. Since male GU infections can take quite some time to treat properly, you'll need an ID doctor and/or a urologist to help. ...Read more
5 weeks of loose stool following 2 days of mild diarrhea. Stool sample positive for shinga toxin but no e-coli o157 actually detected in sample. Why?
Stool sample shows heavy growth of nontoxogenic e. Coli & streptococcus salivarius. Is this abnormal/problematic?
No: Assuming you are not symptomatic, these bacterial organisms are considered part of the normal gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The GI tract starts at the mouth and ends at the anus. Strep salivarius lives in the mouth whereas E. coli lives in the intestines. In only very rare instances does this strep cause illness. The type of E. Coli mentioned causes UTIs since the urinary and GI tracts are so close ...Read more

My daughter 4 had a fever--urine results state she has small amount of hemoglobian and Lactose positive gram negative bacilli? urinary tract infection
Incomplete data: To properly label a 4 yo as a UTI you would need a clean catch or catheterized urine, and growth of 50,000 colonies/unit on a properly plated culture media. Just having pee with a germ in it doesn't qualify. The common squat pee collected in some offices is part vaginal wash out and will contain skin contaminant germs. This might or might not be a UTI. ...Read more
Why antibiotics ?: If the culture was obtained from a surface swab, it is not valid since 1994 ! also, what is the reason for the open wound of the leg? Before your doctor treats anything, he/she should provide you the reason for the slow healing. Infections rarely "smolder". They make things worse fast so if this is not the case, then infection is quite unlikely. Everything has bacteria as a contaminant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If bag for babies urine sample was contaminated can high level of white blood cell test be false?Also second bag for culture make test false neg?
No bags!!: If there is a significant concern for a urine infection in a baby, a bag specimen should never be used. It's akin to pooping on an area before a culture is collected instead of a nice sterile clean sight. The baby should be catheterized with a tiny feeding tube or small cath tube and a truly clean specimen obtained. So many false positives from dirty specimens and then unclear results. ...Read more
My IGg blood test reveal candida albicans, then tested for stool fungi culture which show 'medium growth', I suffer from severe Brain Fog. Advise pls?
Get the right advice: For someone who has a symptom of brain fog, I recommend they meet with a psychiatrist and undergo cognitive testing. Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause this symptom, hopefully your level is normal, as you use supplements. Testing for stool fungi and IGG for Candida is not likely to help explain the cause of your symptoms. Try not to do self-diagnosis- it often leads to errors. ...Read more
