Strong Quote Select Clipboard Font Paragraph Styles Editing Case Number Two An 18-year-old arrived at the infirmary at the University of Florida complaining of nausea and left flank pain. She has been having fevers and chills off and on for about five days. The chills and fever started at about the time that she noted increased urinary frequency with some burning and pain when she urinated. She took some amoxicillin that had been given to her four months ago for cystitis. That infection had been successfully treated by the amoxicillin, but it didn't seem to be having an effect on this infection. Today she is somewhat worried because she has noted some blood in her urine. You examine the patient and ask her for a urine sample. You note a temperature of 39 C, and your physical examination shows left costovertebral angle tenderness. You note that the urine sample of your patient is cloudy and frankly foul smelling. The Gram stain of the sediment showed more than 50 white blood cells per high-power field and the microbe shown below. Several red blood cells were also seen. The organism was also plated on MacConkey's agar and the results shown below. ASM MicrobeLibrary.org @ Miller and Hanley Page 3 of 6 864 words + 100% Type here to search 26 9 w] 11:20 AM 11/3/2020 E
