How to interpret isolated bacteria in urine reports when pus cells are WNL..


Isolated bacteria in urine deposits.. Little significance May be contamination from ant third of urethra May be bacterial overgrowth in stored urine. Only.. freshly passed urine.. uncentrifuged.. having more than 5 bacteria per oif.. is considered significant. Go for culture. Pus cells may not go parallel with bacteria. Sterile or Abacterial pyuria has many causes. Conversely.. asymptomatic bacteriuria without pyuria is documented in textbooks.

Thanks sir

Send Urine for C/S

It is due to contaminated sample, either due to faulty collection or unsterile Container. Repeat urine test with mid stream urine sample.
