It may: But you need to do sensitivity testing against the particular strain of organism isolated, and with the increasing frequency of resistance development this is an essential component of management. ...Read more
Yes: Enterobacter aerogenes is a bacteria that can cause a variety of infections such as urinary tract infections, sepsis, pneumonia, skin/wound infections. It typically does not occur in people who are otherwise healthy. It can be picked up by patients who are hospitalized, particularly in an intensive care unit.

Can staphylococcus haemolyticus cause prostatitis?
All major std negative. Urine culture shows staphylococcus haemolyticus. Prostatitis?
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
Is GBS a second cause of my UTI? culture results: 10,000 CFU/mL Streptococcus Group B, (S. agalactiae) AND >100,000 CFU/mL Escherichia coli
It may but...: It depends on the resistance profile of specific strain of klebsiella. Many strains acquired in the 'community' are very sensitive to almost all antimicrobials except penicillin and Ampicillin and certainly sensitive to piperacillin/tazobactam. However, especially when acquired in a hospital, klebsiella can be quite resistant to therapy including pip/tazobactam. ...Read more

Many antibiotics: Proteus mirabilis is generally quite sensitive to antibiotics commonly used for gram negative infections such as cephalosporins, quinolones, septra, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) many penicillins etc. Some multiply resistant strains exist so sensitivity tests are done by the microbiology lab. ...Read more
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
No: Cryptosporidium is spread by the fecal-oral route. Most commonly by ingestion contaminated water. Will cause relatively mior GI upset in normal healthy people. Recovery is rapid and complete. It can be dangerous, even fatal in immunocompromised people such as people who are HIV positive. Not transmitted by by urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
By changing genes: This is not completely understood, but there is experimental evidence from animal experiments and such, that the pseudomonas grown in a low phosphate environment will respond on changes in what genes the germ activates. These changes lead the bacteria to make chemicals that increase its ability to grow and cause damage. In patients with low phosphate levels this may mean > risk of infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
