Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coagulase Negative Staph Nasal Culture
Urine Culture Results
50,000-100,000 CFU/mL Staphylococcus coagulase negative not S.saprophyticus
10,000-50,000 CFU/mL Multiple organisms
See below: 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. Having said that, the colony count, the dominant organism and multiple organism all suggest that this is not real urinary infection. The organisms are likely to be skin contaminants. ...Read more
This is an infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus - and it often is quite dangerous because the organism, the 'germ' has alot of virulence to it... it's very nasty in other words.

history of sinus infections +dx of UCTD. Recent sinus cultures positive atypical bacteria (Serratia marcescens +Stenotrophomonasmaltophilia - Why?
ID physician: S maltophilia is an organism of low virulence and frequently colonizes fluids used in the hospital setting and patient cultures. Serratia species are opportunistic gram-negative bacteria that are widespread in the environment. And something is definitely wrong here...unless your on say prednisone (for MCTD) and didn't mention this. You should see an infectious disease physician ASAP. ...Read more
Is > 100, 000 col/ml staph coagulase negative beta lactamase positive in urine culture an infection or skin contamination?
Sinus Infectipn-gene sequencing of a culture was positive for staphylococcus epidermidis MRSE. Are antibiotics the only way to cure the infection?
Appropriate Rx?: That seems like an unusual bacteria for sinusitis – I question the accuracy of the test. Probably that was a skin contaminant that has nothing to do with your sinusitis. Actually, the IDSA discourages antibiotic use for acute sinusitis. Would seek ID specialist or ENT. Antiinflammatory meds may help. Antibiotics could have side effects. Need to try conservative treatment first. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Urine; moderate WBC, no nitrites, culture <50k multiple non-uropathogenic gram positive bacteria. No symptoms. Possible contamination? Antibiotics??

In the absence of symptoms this is a contaminant or a colonization of your urinary tract. Note: Do not test urine without a good reason.... ...Read more

A bad type.: Mrsa is a potent strain of staph bacteria that worries doctors because it is resistant to the antibiotic methicillin, which for many years was the single best treatment for staph infections. It is usually treatable with other antibiotics, such as Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or doxycycline, but such infections can be very virulent and contagious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not one I would use: This class of drugs have a broad range of effects against many types of germs but i find no listing for strep throat..It is not used in kids and rarely used in most simple infections. Since strep is universally sensitive to the penicillins, and other inexpensive medications, it is one i would never use for strep throat. ...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
