Among men with febrile urinary tract infection (FUTI), whether the host's fecal flora is the source for the urine strain ("fecal-urethral" hypothesis), and whether pathogenesis is driven by prevalence versus special pathogenicity, are unknown. Accordingly, pretherapy urine isolates from 65 men with FUTI were compared with concurrent rectal isolates from the same hosts according to serotype, genomic profile, phylogenetic group, and virulence genotype. The host's multiple rectal colonies included… CONTINUE READING
