Leukocytes in urine. Urine culture mixed urogenital flora 10, 000-25, 000. Frequent urination. Did not respond to antibiotic. What does this mean?
Mixed flora: Hi Ashley. If you have "mixed flora" in the urine - even with leukocytes (or white cells) - it may mean that the specimen was not a "clean catch" specimen.

I recoverd up from cbp (step aurea mssa) but condition are same still there is no bacteria in prostate smear and urine culture any anitibiotic suggest?
Prostatitis: If, and this is a big IF, the condition is caused by Staphylococcus aureus sensitive to methicillin, one of the few antibiotics that penetrates into the prostate is clindamycin. The organism should be sensitive, it can be taken orally, and will reach the site of involvement. All this depends upon whether it is actually causing the symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Normal ranges: The urinalysis report should contain a normal reference range for each item tested. If there are any tests that fall out of that range, it will be flagged as abnormal.

Culture report: If the urine culture report is negative, there is no infection. If the report shows bacteria or fungus, there is a problem that can be dealt with antibiotics or anti-fungal agents.

Klebsiella: This is not normal. Whether it is indicative of a urinary tract infection would depend upon the number of bacteria per milliliter of urine, the repetitiveness with which it is cultured, and so on. You can have what is called asymptomatic bacteriuria in women that does not require treatment, but not in men. Best wishes. ...Read more

Need to know type and # of bacteria and whether there are accompanying white blood cells in urine. ...Read more

In addition at times the specimen can be contaminated and not representative of true infection. ...Read more
What does C1-10^COLONY COUNT= 1000-10000 mixed flora at final reading^L mean, on a urine culture.
Urine culture: This is a contaminated specimen and it means absolutely nothing.

Good luck and you should discuss this with the doctor who ordered it. If still need results get a clean midstream catch into a sterile container. ...Read more
