Pseudomonas Fluorescens Colony Morphology
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
As used in pathology, this is the abnormal shapes and arrangements of organs, tissues, cells, and components of cells that enable the diagnosis of disease and help to understand its impact. Some diseases involve only abnormal function of normal-appearing parts and thus ...Read more
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
Pls interpret vagina gram stain reslt.Gm Stain (-),Polymorphonuclear-Moderate,Epi cells-Moderate,Gm(+)Cocci pairs-Few,Gm(+)bacili-Mod,Gm(-)bacili-rare?
Probably normal: It's hard to give you a definitive answer without seeing it and knowing what was causing your diarrhea, but the vagina normally has bacteria present (all the Gm + and - categories) and some polymorphonuclear cells (neutrophils). The gram+ bacilli are most likely lactobacillus, the normal flora of the vagina.The epithelial cells are simply the lining of the vagina. ...Read more
Positive for fungal spores
gram stain:few gram negative bacilli in singles, few gram cocci in singles and moderate epithelial cells & pus cells noted ?
CULT FUNGI Result
1 Colony Sterile mold, does not produce conidia necessary for identification.
1 Colony Yeast not Cryptococcus neoformans.Explain ?
Petri dish jargon: This is the microbiologist's report on two single colonies of different fungi. One is a yeast form and one is a mould. Neither can be identified as to what 'species' it is, but it doesn't matter since these are what we call 'contaminants'. I suspect this was a 'sputum' sample? This occurs quite commonly in those specimens. If you're not feeling well, good to see the doc who ordered the test. ...Read more
High vaginal swab result: scanty leucocytes & gram positive cocci, numerous gram positive bacilli, moderate epithelial cells . Result shows infection?
Not likely: Bacteria are part of the contents of the vaginal barrel. When infection is present due to bacteria there are usually large numbers of leucocytes and few epithelial cells. All told, however, test results are not always accurate, and best to discuss this with the doctor who ordered this to begin with. ...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
Culture/Gram's stain: Depends upon whether these were from the culture or the stain of some clinical material, where the culture was obtained from, and why. This may be an entirely inconsequential result or possibly represent severe illness, but would need far more info to say. Discuss this with the doctor who cultured you. If this was from your tonsil it is probably Strep and you should have been treated. Get better. ...Read more
Psmear result, pus cell 6-8, epithelial cell ++, gram [email protected]+vebacili+, gram-vecocci, -vebacili nil, fungal [email protected] nil, do ihve to wory?
No worry : The primary purpose of pap smear is to detect cancer or pre-cancerous changes of the cervix. Nothing in your report suggests that. Gram positive and gram negative bacteria along with some fungus, epithelial cells, and leukocytes are all normal inhabitants of the vaginal flora. The presence of trichomonas (std) or hpv (std linked to cancer of cervix) would be abnormalities requiring treatment. ...Read more
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

Mediast biopsy results: lg bulky noncaseat granulomatous nodes. Rare presumptive corynebacterium species, alpha streptoccus, epithelial cells & wbc. ?
Sarcoidosis: The bacteria you mentioned all benign skin contaminant and not because most likely of the noncaseating granuloma. Noncaseating granuloma skin happening sarcoidosis a poorly understood reactive process which can lead to shortness of breath. Other causes include fungal agents and yeast infections. A biopsy would be important. ...Read more
Pap smear says atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance.No trichomonas seen, scanty polymorph nuclear cells, gram positive bacilli.Mean?
Probably normal: Not exacly normal, but these Pap findings are very common and rarely serious. Atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (called ASCUS, sounds like "ask us") is so common it can be considered normal. Most paps show a few white blood cells ("polymorphonuclear cells"), and gram positive bacteria usually indicate a healthy vagina. To be sure, check w/ doc or clinic where pap was done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
