  1. Escherichia coli
    • #1 cause
    • gram - rods, faculative anaerobes, ferment glucose, lactose +, nitrites (+), catalase (+), oxidase (-), antigen O, H on flagella, K on capsule, LPS, motile
    • Contamination of urethra --> ascension to bladder --> migration to kidney or prostate
    • McConkey agar
  2. Klebsiella pneumoniae
    • gram - rods, faculative anaerobes, ferment glucose, nitrites (+), lactose +, catalase (+), oxidase (-), antigen O, H on flagella, K on capsule, LPS
    • Contamination of urethra --> ascension to bladder --> migration to kidney or prostate
    • McConkey agar
  3. Proteus mirabilis
    • gram - rods, faculative anaerobes, ferment glucose, nitrites (+), Lactose -, ureasae +, swarming motility, catalase (+), oxidase (-), antigen O, H on flagella, K on capsule, LPS
    • Contamination of urethra --> ascension to bladder --> migration to kidney or prostate
    • chronic infection causes urease + urinary stones and high pH
    • McConkey agar, swarming motility
  4. Enterobacter
    • gram - rods, faculative anaerobes, ferment glucose, nitrites (+), lactose +, catalase (+), oxidase (-), antigen O, H on flagella, K on capsule, LPS
    • Contamination of urethra --> ascension to bladder --> migration to kidney or prostate
    • McConkey agar
  5. Serratia marcescens
    • gram - rods, faculative anaerobes, ferment glucose, nitrites (+), catalase (+),Lactose +, oxidase (-), antigen O, H on flagella, K on capsule, LPS
    • Contamination of urethra --> ascension to bladder --> migration to kidney or prostate
    • McConkey agar, distinctive brick red colonies
  6. Pseudomonas aeruginosa
    • Oxidase +
    • opportunistic infection
  7. Staphylococcus saprophyticus
    • gram + cocci in clusters, catalase +
    • UTIs in sexually active young women (cytitis)
    • blood agar, no hemolysis, novobiocin resistant
  8. Enterococcus faecalis/faecium
    same as IE
