OBJECTIVES To carefully collect samples from the external urethral orifice, navicular fossa, and penile urethra and perform a semiquantitative evaluation and identification of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria present in the normal male urethra. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Thirty uncircumcised male patients 18 to 40 years old without any inflammatory and/or infectious urethral processes were enrolled in this study.Expand
Anaerobic seminal fluid micro-flora in chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome patients.
TLDR
It is found only one third of the micro-organisms to be similar in urine and semen while anaerobic bacteria and some aerobic opportunists were infrequent in urine.
Urethral Instillation of Povidone-Iodine Reduces Post-Cystoscopy Urinary Tract Infection in Males: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
This result strongly supports inclusion of distal urethral irrigation with povidone-iodine in males before office cystoscopy, even when pre-procedure mid-stream urine culture is sterile.
Seminal microflora in asymptomatic inflammatory (NIH IV category) prostatitis.
OBJECTIVES To prove the need for the quantitative full-microflora semen analysis for determining the role of microorganisms in the etiology of asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis, and to correlate
Urethral dysbacteriosis as an underlying, primary cause of chronic prostatitis: potential implications for probiotic therapy.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that urethra dysbacteriosis may be an underlying, primary cause of CP and the wide use of antibiotics may be a initiating risk factor for CP.
Coryneform bacteria in semen of chronic prostatitis patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that although coryneforms are generally considered as saprophytes, they are not uniform and some species (Corynebacterium group G and Arthrobacter sp.) may be associated with inflammatory prostatitis.
Effect of nasal mometasone furoate on the nasal and nasopharyngeal flora.
TLDR
It is indicated that MF could be increase the colonization of the potential pathogens in some of the patients at the subclinical level particularly in the nasopharyngeal area.
Improved detection of microbial ureteral stent colonisation by sonication
TLDR
Sonication is a promising approach in the detection of microbial ureteral stent colonisation (MUSC) and the clinical relevance of MUSC needs further evaluation to classify isolated microorganism properly as contaminants or pathogens.
Microbiota of the seminal fluid from healthy and infertile men.
TLDR
Diverse kinds of bacteria were present in the human semen, but there were no significant differences between sperm donors and infertility patients, and the presence of Anaerococcus might be a biomarker for low sperm quality.
The etiology of acute nongonococcal urethritis--the enigma of idiopathic urethritis?
  • P. Horner
  • Medicine
    Sexually transmitted diseases
  • 2011
TLDR
This study population of men with acute NGU appear at increased risk of an STI pathogen compared to the general population, in terms of previous incarceration, illicit drug use, and probably previous history of NGU and sexual behaviour.
Relationship between semen cultures, leukospermia, and semen analysis in men undergoing fertility evaluation.
TLDR
Leukospermia is a poor marker for either bacteriospermia or impaired semen quality, and Streptococcus viridans and Enterococcus faecalis are associated with poorer semen quality and may warrant treatment.

Bacteriology of the urethra in normal men and men with nongonococcal urethritis
TLDR
This study has provided information about the prevalence and the variety of the aerobic and anaerobic microbiological flora of the anterior urethra of sexually active males and does not implicate any bacteria other than C. trachomatis and U. urealyticum as potential causes of NGU.
Diagnosis and etiology of nongonococcal urethritis.
TLDR
This study adds Corynebacterium vaginale (Haemophilus vaginalis), group B streptococci, and yeasts to the list of sexually transmitted microorganisms that are not etiologic determinants of NGU.
Comparison of the Gram‐stained Urethral Smear and First- vo ided Urin e Sediment in the Diagnosis of Nongonococcal Urethritis
TLDR
The diagnostic sensitivity of the numbers of leukocytes in the sediment of first-voided urine and in gram-stained smears of urethral secretions was evaluated by a study of 62 men with symptoms of nongonococcal urethritis to determine the effect on subsequent isolation of C. trachomatis.
Attachment of bacteria to exfoliated cells from the urogenital tract.
To establish urogenital infections, organisms must adhere to the mucosal lining. A differential adherence capacity among various bacterial species was observed when exfoliated urethral and urothelial
Diagnosis of Urethritis: Role of Polymorphonuclear Leukocyte Counts in Gram‐stained Urethral Smears
TLDR
The PMN count in the gram-stained urethral smear was found to be more sesitive than the appearance of the urine in the diagnosis of urethritis among those with minimal symptoms and signs and not harboring C. trachomatis.
Bacterial adhesion to uroepithelial cells: a morphologic study.
TLDR
In vivo observations indicate that the bacterial surface matrix participates in bacterial adhesion to uroepithelial cells and in bacteria-bacteria adhesion.
Color atlas and textbook of diagnostic microbiology
TLDR
A comprehensive overview of microbiology offers confidence by building a solid foundation for further areas of study, including taxonomy, classification, identification, and speciation, and by explaining all major microorganisms and their role as agents in disease.

TLDR
The role of the Microbiology Laboratory in the Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases: Guidelines to Practice and Management and Guidelines for the Collection, Transport, Processing, Analysis, and Reporting of Cultures from Specific Specimen Sources are discussed.
Manual of clinical microbiology
TLDR
A collaborative team of editors and authors from around the world revised the Manual to include the latest applications of genomics and proteomics, producing an authoritative work of two volumes filled with current findings regarding infectious agents, leading-edge diagnostic methods, laboratory practices, and safety guidelines.

A retrospective study on early morning smears confirmed the value of this investigation for diagnosing urethritis in men. In 200 patients 108 new infections were diagnosed.
