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

Staphylococcus is the common skin bacteria but needs to be treated if your doctors thinks that it may be the offending agent. ...Read more

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
