15 Possible Causes for Gram-Negative Coccobacillus, Positive Throat Culture

  • Hemophilus Influenza Infection

    By microscopy, H. influenzae is a small (1 x 0.3µ) gram-negative coccobacillus.[] Etiologic Agent H. influenzae is a pleomorphic gram-negative coccobacillus. H. influenzae may be either encapsulated (typeable) or unencapsulated (nontypeable).[] Infectious agent of Haemophilus influenzae infections Haemophilus influenzae is a Gram-negative coccobacillus that is a normal part of the upper respiratory tract flora.[]

  • Otitis Media

    The bacterium is a small, pleomorphic, gram-negative coccobacillus.[] One study reported proportion of throat cultures positive for pneumococci (but not resistant strains) by group ( Mandel 1996a ).[] coccobacillus.[]

  • Influenza

    A. baumannii is a nonfermentative gram-negative coccobacillus that is a commensal but also causes infections (e.g., ventilator-associated pneumonia and bloodstream infections[] The test correctly identified 179 of the 204 culture positive specimens and 203 of the 221 culture negative specimens; the sensitivity and specificity compared with the culture[] The specimens included 184 nasal aspirates, 140 nasal swabs, and 101 throat swabs.[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus

    This gram negative rod (coccobacillus) forms shiny, mucoid colonies which have entire margins and are slightly raised. Older colonies often have a darker center.[] Of the 34 patients with bullous impetigo, 20 cultures were taken and all were positive for coagulase-positive S. aureus.[] This gram negative rod is a common contaminant of vegetable matter which forms shiny colonies with entire margins and convex elevation.[]

  • Meningitis

    Haemophilus influenzae meningitis H influenzae is a small, pleomorphic, gram-negative coccobacillus that is frequently found as part of the normal flora in the upper respiratory[] […] and rectal swabs—culture, PCR (positive for longer than CSF) Herpes simplex virus (HSV) CSF PCR* HSV type specific serology.[] […] and decreased length of stay in hospital. 16 Table 2 Diagnosing viral meningitis 1 15 17 18 Cause Key diagnostic test Other potentially useful tests Enteroviruses CSF PCR* Throat[]

  • Acute Epiglottitis

    Epiglottitis Assessment Picmonic Epiglottitis Interventions Haemophilus influenzae is a gram-negative coccobacillus that can cause several diseases, including meningitis,[] One of the four throat cultures was positive for Haemophilus influenzae type b.[] Haemophilus influenzae is a pleomorphic gram-negative coccobacillus. There are encapsulated and non-encapsulated forms.[]

  • Septic Shock

    Pasteurella is a Gram-negative coccobacillus that causes a wide spectrum of diseases in humans and is commonly transmitted from cat and dog bites.[] […] swelling, and lymphadenopathy or positive throat swab culture or rapid test result Lower respiratory tract: Pneumonia, empyema, or lung abscess, among others, with productive[] […] cough, pleuritic chest pain, consolidation on auscultation, positive sputum culture result, positive blood culture result, rapid viral testing, urinary antigen testing (eg[]

  • Bordetella Parapertussis

    Bordetella is a Gram-negative encapsulated coccobacillus of the genus Bordetella, and the causative agent of the respiratory infection named pertussis or whooping cough.[] Twenty-two of 71 (30. 1%) throat swabs were positive by PCR compared to 2 of 71 (2.8%) throat swabs positive by culture, indicating that a reassessment of the use of throat[] B. pertussis is a very small Gram-negative aerobic coccobacillus that appears singly or in pairs.[]

  • Rubella

    negative coccobacillus, which occurs in encapsulated (typeable) and non-encapsulated (untypeable) forms.[] Key tests for isolation: Acute Rubella can be identified by a positive viral culture for rubella.[] In addition to antibody tests, the evidence of recent rubella infection is a positive viral culture for rubella or detection of rubella virus by testing for the genetic material[]

  • Diphtheritic Myocarditis

    It's a gram-negative coccobacillus, which is aerobic nonfermentative, fastidious and delicate (sensitive to cold and drying) (cotton swab kills).[] In each case the diagnosis was based on a history of diphtheria with positive throat cultures, and significant electrocardiographic abnormalities -namely, left bundle-branch[] , n(%) 17 (35.4) Culture positive, n(%) 10 (20.8) Clinical features, n(%) Fever 48 (100) Bull Neck 32 (66.7) Stridor 30 (62.5) Hoarse voice 19 (39.5) Difficulty in swallowing[]
