Urinary tract infections in men caused by Staphylococcus saprophyticus.


Clinical data of 49 male patients, whose urine contained Staphylococcus saprophyticus (greater than 10(5) bacteria/ml), were analyzed. The median age of the patients was 70 yr (range 7-83). Of the patients, 25 had catheter à demeure. Among the remaining patients, 22 had symptoms of acute urinary tract infection, 8 of whom had symptoms suggesting engagement also of the upper urinary tract. One 17-yr-old man had acute epididymitis. One patient was symptomless. No obstructive uropathy could be revealed in 13 (54%) of the 24 patients without catheter.
