Ultimately, the culture grew 25,000 CFU Aerococcus urinae
, and his empiric treatment was changed from ciprofloxacin to amoxicillin with clavulonate.
In a similar case, Aerococcus urinae was found to be the causal pathogen in a case of necrotizing urethritis reported by Babaeer et al.

The majority of urinary isolates are Aerococcus urinae (55-66%) followed by Aerococcus sanguinicola (26-46%).
These systems are only able to identify either Aerococcus urinae or Aerococcus viridans to the species level.
Unlike the Bruker MALDI Biotyper, the VITEK MALDI-TOF MS can only identify Aerococcus viridans and Aerococcus urinae to a species level.
7 (3.0) Group B streptococcus 1 (0.4) Other * 3 (1.3) * Other pathogens were 2 Aerococcus urinae
, 2 Citrobacterkoseri, and 1 Salmonella species.
Aerococcus urinae is a Gram-positive bacterium which can cause urinary tract infections (UTIs), bacteremia, and infective endocarditis (IE) [1-3].
