Predominance Of Coccobacilli
It sounds like: you are reading a report, possibly from your pap smear. Coccobacilli are bacteria. It is a general name for many of the usual bugs/flora found in the vaginal tract. It refers to cocci--bacteria with a spherical, ovoid or generally round shape. The "shift" terminology indicates there may be more of a certain type than usually seen. This may indicate bacterial vaginosis, but more tests are needed. ...Read more
My pap smears show predominantly superficial and intermediate squamous cells along with many neutrophils.Few spores and pseudohyphae of candida albica?
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
Differentiate between staphylococcus and streptococcus species in terms of Morphology,Biochemical test and Culture?
Staph vs Strep: This is a complex subject that is not conducive to extensive discussion here. Suggest you get a microbiology text. Staphylococci are larger and grow more in clumps than chains. Staph that produce coagulase are species aureus, the others are a wide variety of less pathogenic organisms except for lugdenensis which has characteristics of aureus in producing disease. ...Read more
Urinalysis culture? 10,000-50,000 CFU/mL of Mixed nonuropathogenic Gram positive flora. May represent colonizers from external and internal genitalia?
Reactive cellular changes &/or repair are present. Fungal organisms morphologically consistent with candida species present. Endometrial cells present?
Yelling at us: There is no need to yell on this application. All questions are considered. This is out of context and with no medical history attached upon which to comment. Your physician who ordered this test is responsible to interpret it for you. ...Read more
No: Presumably there people that carry it and do not get sick. ...Read more
Polymorfic flora with preponderance cocobacillus gram negativ
with suggestive appearance of bacterial vaginosis ("clue cells").What it means?Thank you
Abnormal flora: It sounds like your vaginal bacterial balance is out of whack. You may need some antibiotics, and i would follow that up with a vaginal probiotic to help build up your healthy bacteria. Your doctor should know what to prescribe. When you've completed that treatment, you can try going to whole foods to find a "vaginal" probiotic. (it won't help much to take it orally. Must insert vaginally). ...Read more
Smear of my wife: endocervical cell/metaplastic t.Z. Component absent, adequate squamous present, no evidence of sil in the sample, what mean? Thanks
PAP smear results: Pap sounds like it was normal. The cervix is composed of an endocervix (inner portion) and ectocervix (external part protruding into vagina). The transformation zone (tz) is the most common location for cervical cancer to form. Metaplasia is the change of one cell type to another and can increase the risk of cancer, but was absent. Sil (squamous intraepithelial lesion) can precede cervical cancer. ...Read more
Negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy .shift in flora suggestive of bacterial vaginosis .reactive cellular changes marked background infla?
Pap results: These pap results are not any major cause for concern. But the inflammation and shift in flora could be the cause of vaginal discharge or odor. Good hygiene and avoiding antibiotics that may interfere with normal bacteria, and a good dose of time are probably the best remedy if any is needed. ...Read more

Infectious diseases: Diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, worms and other parasites are broadly classified as 'infectious diseases'. Bacteria and fungi can infect essentially any body site ranging from superficial infections of skin to deep seated infections such as the of the liver, lungs and brain. Hope that this helps. ...Read more
Why ever?: Candida albicans is a normal component of the gut background flora.It can occupy up to 5% of the dry weight of your stool at any one time. Many alternative health providers try to sell the idea that this is the cause of many vague health problems and often have a list of dozens. I would not waste my time with this. ...Read more
