Hematuria: a simple method for identifying glomerular bleeding.
Microscopic hematuria, although not evident to the patient, is being detected more frequently following the introduction of chemical screening tests, and this has greatly increased the number of patients being referred for investigation. Expand
Detection of bladder bacteriuria in patients with acute urinary symptoms.
Quantitative culture of midstream urine fails to yield a significant microorganism in many patients with acute urinary symptoms, and culture of bladder aspiration urine for low counts and fastidious species is necessary to diagnose bacteriuria. Expand
Prevalence of Gardnerella vaginalis in the Urinary Tract
The result suggest that colonization or infection of the bladder and upper urinary tract by G. vaginalis is very largely a phenomenon of females, with the highest frequency in pregnant women. Expand
Urinary erythrocyte morphology in the diagnosis of glomerular hematuria.
Electron microscopy of urinary erythrocytes from 36 patients with glomerulonephritis demonstrated the range of dysmorphic changes characteristic of glomerular bleeding, presumably resulting from environmental changes suffered by the ery Throcytes within renal tubules. Expand
Unconventional bacteria in urinary tract disease: Gardnerella vaginalis.
The results show that two fastidious microbial species, not conventionally associated with urinary tract infection, are recoverable from the upper urinary tracts of patients with so-called sterile pyelonephritis. Expand
Comparison of mid catheter collection and suprapubic aspiration of urine for diagnosing bacteriuria due to fastidious micro-organisms.
Results show that culture of mid catheter urine samples provides a reasonable guide to the presence of bacteriuria owing to fastidious micro-organisms and can be used when a suprapubic aspiration specimen cannot be obtained easily. Expand
A prospective study of cortical scarring in acute febrile pyelonephritis in adults: clinical and bacteriological characteristics.
Late scarring in acute pyelonephritis could not be predicted by clinical features, response to treatment or antibiotic used, and inhibition of E. coli growth by the addition of EDTA was highly predictive of acute CT and DMSA abnormalities. Expand
Haematuria associated with ureaplasma infection in sickle-cell trait.
Phase-contrast microscopy of the urine of a young Greek woman with macroscopic haematuria showed sickling of the red blood cells, confirming the presence of glomerulonephritis, and Ureaplasma urealyticum was described. Expand
Unconventional bacteria in urinary tract disease: Ureaplasma urealyticum.
The results indicate that microorganisms not conventionally associated with urinary tract infection are recoverable from the bladder urine of a high percentage of patients with so-called "sterile pyelonephritis," in which group of patients these microorganisms may contribute to progressive renal disease. Expand
Ureaplasma urealyticum in the upper urinary tracts of renal allograft recipients.
Urine samples from 123 renal transplant recipients were cultured for the presence of Ureaplasma urealyticum and other fastidious microorganisms. Ureaplasmas were recovered alone or in associationExpand
