Staphylococcus saprophyticus



Hello.
My name is S. saprophyticus.
I'm a Gram Positive cocci like my cousin S. aureus.
But I'm a little different to him, I'm called a "coagulase negative" staph, which means I react differently then him in a special test.

I get into women's bladders and urinary tracts.
I am the most common Gram Positive cause of urinary tract infection.
I'm very popular, especially in sexually active young women.

As a clinical microbiologist for almost 25 years I can't say I've EVER seen this organsim cause infection in a male. This one always causes me to ponder. If it's in sexually active women obviously the men are carriers - they just don't get infected with it. Not really fair is it? Chlamydia is much the same way. You also said "young" women which is also very true and I wonder why only young women. I don't recall seeing it on anyone over 30.

Oh, nasty microbe!

Predictors of infection seem to be swamped by exposure to spermicide-coated condoms.

I wonder if changing contraception choices are the reason why the cute lil' s. saprophyticus tends to hang around with young women.

Have you ever heard of the nanobugs?

I'm a pharmacist, and I must say that I have not only seen this organism in women over 30, I've HAD it as a woman in my 40s. Not only that, but I had it (at separate times) in both methicillin-resistant and methicillin-sensitive strains. It really is not a sexually- TRANSMITTED disease, but a sexually-facilitated disease, since the germ lives on your skin and rarely causes problems there. Men don't often get this bug, and rarely get the more common E.coli bladder infections, either, because of their anatomy: the germs just have a lot further to travel to get from the skin into the bladder.

you have made medical school problem sets that much easier, thanks :-). It seems that their course materials never contain as much detail or information they require so we're forced to google and wikipedia many tidbits. Its then that we discover awesome people like you! The illustrations are key!

Hello Emma, you seem to know a lot about this microbe so I have a question for you. How did Staphylococcus saprophyticus get it's name? or can you suggest a link for me to find this information. It is a part of my Unknown Lab report I would appreciate your help, THANKS!

It looks like I am the exception. I am a 45 year old male, happily married for 17 years and been with the same partner for 19.5 years. Neither my wife or I have had other sexual partners during our relationship and I am my wife's one and only sexual partner. I have never had a UTI before and am rarely ever ill...I went almost 6 years without a common cold!

I contracted a UTI about 1 month back and it made me quite ill. I tried 3 different antibiotics and finally I needed to have a 4th kind which is now starting to improve things. I met a consultant and after tests he confirmed Staphylococcus saprophyticus as being the culprit. He told me I was very unlucky to get it and that he had also never known it to occur in a middle aged male, let alone a non-sexually active one! Apparently the early antibiotics were not helping at all and the infection just worsened. It does appear I have been very unlucky but I am now on the mend
