Considering the severity of the clinical picture, the possible polymicrobic
infection and the initial lack of efficacy of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, we decided to use metronidazole in combination with a broad spectrum antibiotic such as meropenem.
BCs with more than one contaminant species were considered as being a single contaminated BC.
Since the isolation of more than one organism from a single specimen of urine must always be interpreted with caution, and considering contamination, the patients whose culture results had polymicrobic
bacteriuria samples were excluded from the study.
We want to think about community-acquired pneumonia as a polymicrobic
The sites of these infections typically contain polymicrobic
mixtures of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.
In five patients with UTI the infection was polymicrobic
