Clinical Information:
The joint infections begin when disease-carrying bacteria enter the body, often after a trauma or a surgical procedure, and spread to the bones and joints through the bloodstream. Without prompt treatment, bone and joint infections can become long-term conditions. Many types of bacteria can cause bone and joint infections, including Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter, and Streptococcus.
 
Reference Value:
No growth
 
Interpretation:
Isolate and identify potentially aerobic pathogenic organisms
