Clinical Information:
Upper respiratory tract infections (URI) are illnesses caused by an acute infection which involves the upper respiratory tract including the nose, sinuses, pharynx or larynx. This commonly includes nasal obstruction, sore throat, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, sinusitis, otitis media, and the common cold. Acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (ABRS) is an infection of both your nasal cavity and sinuses. It is caused by bacteria. It’s most often caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis  or Haemophilus influenzae. It often starts in the nasal cavity and spreads into your sinuses.
 
Reference Value:
No growth or normal flora
 
Interpretation:
Any microorganism found where no resident flora is present is considered significant and is reported. For specimens contaminated with the usual bacterial flora, bacteria that are potentially pathogenic are identified.
