Clinical Information:
Bacterial pericarditis occurs by direct infection during trauma, thoracic surgery, or catheter drainage, by spread from an intrathoracic, myocardial, or subdiaphragmatic focus, and hematogenous dissemination. These condition occurs when certain bacteria enter the pericardium and cause infection. The most common bacteria to cause pericarditis are Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Pneumococcus. Weak immune system people are increased risk of developing bacterial pericarditis because their bodies are less able to fight infection
 
Reference Value:
No growth
 
Interpretation:
Isolate and identify potentially aerobic pathogenic organisms
