Doctor insights on:
Urine test - Leukocytes 3+ wbc/hpf 40-60, squamous epithelial Cells 6-10, bacteria moderate. Bladder infection? had hysterectomy.
Possible UTI: Urinary tract infection (UTI, bladder infection) is likelys with these results, but the epithelial cells indicate it was not a clean catch specimen, i.e. the urine was contaminated with vaginal fluid. Still, the leukocyte and WBC results suggest UTI; if not, you may have a vaginal infection, such as yeast. The biggest problem might be interpreting a urine culture result. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Suggests contamination with urogenital or skin flora.
>100,000 CFU/ml Lactobacillus species.
20,000 CFU/ml mixed gram positive flora.
What's it mean?
Means contaminated: Urine specimen from the surrounding area around urethra (opening where the urine comes out from). You may want to repeat the test , if your doctor still wants that, get a clean catch specimen, which entails cleansing the area first, passing some urine, then obtain a midstream urine sample, follow the lab instructions for that, best wishes ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Diagnosed w/ uti. Urine showed wbc=35000, positive protein, culture= <10 x 10*6 cfu/l skin flora. Does that mean no bacteria? Is it something else?
Skin flora: Skin flora are bacteria that are normally found living on our skin. When present in a urine culture, it typically means that the specimen was contaminated (e.g., the urine touched something before it got into the sterile specimen cup). I would recommend a repeat culture, using a catheterized specimen if possible. ...Read more
Aerobic semen culture showed enterococcus. Anaerobic culture was clear of bacteria. Does it mean an enterococcus species easier to be treated?
No: Aerobic means it grows in oxygen. Anaerobic means the bacteria grow in the absence of oxygen. Whether bacteria are aerobic or anaerobic does not determine how hard those bacteria are to treat. That is determined by whether we have readily available antibiotics capable of killing them. ...Read more

Bladder sling, infection past 3yrs, max growth in culture, flesh partials in culture, possible bladder cancer? ?
NOt really: Your question is a bit hard to understand. If you or family member had a sling for urinary stress incontinence, this can lead to bladder outlet obstruction and uti's. You need to be seen by a urologist and have a urodynamics test and cystoscopy to ensure no foreign body in the urethra or bladder (part of the sling). Cysto will evaluate for potential bladder tumor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urinalysis culture? 10,000-50,000 CFU/mL of Mixed nonuropathogenic Gram positive flora. May represent colonizers from external and internal genitalia?
Gram Stain1+ Squamous Epithelial Cells
2+ Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes
2+ Mixed Gram Positive Organisms
2+ Normal Flora
Is this normal.
Non diagnostic : The squamous epithelium means the sputum came from mouth not lungs (no squamous in lungs/bronchi) but leukocytes means infection. So, this sputum has infection but can't use it to diagnose due to contamination from mouth normal saliva that has usual mouth bacteria (called normal flora). Actinomycosis is being appropriately treated with penicillin. Discuss with your doc to see if need sputum resent ...Read more
Urinalysis results: reaction PH 8.0/ leukocytes SMALL 1+ / WBC 2-5/ epithelial cells SOME/ bacteria SOME/ everything else is negative and normal.
UA results: Minor variations in the components of a urinalysis can occur normally, but no one can safely judge whether an infection is present by reading UA results online The doctor who ordered the test can explain whether the UA results might mean an infection, or whether an infection is unlikely. If the diagnosis was no infection but you continue to feel ill later, a recheck is needed. ...Read more
Pls help interpret urinalysis: reaction:8.0
pus cells 1-3
ephitheli cells: few
a phospates: moderate?
Depends on your: Symptoms and the reason for the test. There are no obvious abnormalities in the data that you mention, but you should ask the doctor who ordered the test to interpret the results. A doctor will order a test only when there is a good reason to order it.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
5 chronic skin ulcer 2 cultures gram- ancintobacter anaerobic taken PO doxy,Cef,Kef,Clinda,Amox,Cipr no immune diseases, why cant the bacteria die?
See a dermatologist: Begin with a diagnosis. First define why you have skin ulcers. Where? How long? etc. It is NEVER a simple question of which bacteria and which antibiotics. MOST skin ulcers should not be treated with antibiotics at all. I suspect you are being treated by someone who should refer you to a more knowledgable DR. ...Read more
Hi Doc, had UTI test. Result: Epithelial cells 1-2/HPF, pus Cells 2-3/HPF, colony count 100,000 cfu/ml. Organism Isolated:Staphylococcus saprophyticus?
Possible UTI: The organism you described is a skin contaminant and is not considered a pathological bacteria it is not the bacteria that has given you a bladder infection. If you have pain on urination or pain around the belly you may have a bladder infection these values in your urine analysis are not diagnostic of a UTI. ...Read more
13500 WBC 46% lymps, chronic muscle deep tissue infection, pain in knees. Responded using ciprofloxicin to tr ear infection. Blood culture next?
Knee infection : The best way to rule out knee joint infection is to aspirate the knee joint and examine the fluid for organisms and perform cell count and culture/sensitivity to determine appropriate antibiotics. If you have high fever and chills consistent with generalized illness then blood culture will be necessary. You need to see you doctor who can examine you and decide what to do next good luck. ...Read more
Just finish psmear, pus cell6-8, epithilial cell++, gram+vecocci++ @ +vebacilli+, tricho vginalis nil, gram-ve cocci @ -ve bacilli nil.Do I have std?
This doesn't tell: There is nothing here to say "yes", but this doesn't rule most stuff out. You may have hpv / human papillomavirus, sypilis, chlamydia, hiv, hepatitis, crabs, herpes gonorrhea or trichomonas that is not active, the pap smear isn't about ruling these in or out; it is primarily a search for malignant / premalignant cells. I'm sorry if there was some confusion. Best wishes. ...Read more
