Abstract:

Specimens from genital sites are sent to the clinical microbiology laboratory for detection of microorganisms from females presenting with clinical syndromes such as cervicitis, vulvovaginitis, urethritis, bacterial vaginosis (BV), salpingitis (pelvic inflammatory disease [PID]), endometritis, or genital ulcers and from males exhibiting urethritis, epididymitis, prostatitis, or genital ulcers ( Tables 3.9.1–1 to 3.9.1–3 ) ( ). Specimens are also submitted from pregnant females to diagnose the presence of organisms that may cause disease in the neonate. Less commonly, specimens are sent from children and post-menopausal women ( ).
