I work in a clinical lab. I specifically read urine cultures. Yesterday I had a patient with a full blown infection of brevibacillus. I wish I took a picture of it, but it really isn’t that exciting looking. It looked identical to alpha hemolytic strep, viridans strep. It came up as pyr positive but was not aurococcus or enterococcus. I put it on our mass spec and it ID it as brevibacillus. No one in the lab heard of it, nor did we have a code to report it out for the client. I’ve done a little google search on it but was curious if anyone has had more experience with it, and how a person would have a UTI with this bacteria.

I know that beta glucuronidase is necessary for something. I have a condition that no one seems to be able to figure out. I have unmeasurably low b-glucuronidase, very high escherichia coli, and very low alkaline phosphatase. I also have high ldl cholesterol despite eating a practically vegan diet. Could there be a connection? I’ve had the best of the best doctors not able to figure it out. I really believe there could be a correlation.

The title is pretty self-explanatory. Can anyone suggest or explain why are some viruses blood-borne only?😅 I apologize if it’s to silly but I could not find an answer.
