6551-6Streptococcus agalactiae Ag [Presence] in Throat by ImmunofluorescenceActive

Part Description

LP14405-2   Streptococcus agalactiae
Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) or Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a gram-positive coccus that causes serious diseases, primarily in neonates, pregnant patients, elderly patients and those with significant underlying diseases. S. agalactiae typically presents as skin and soft tissue infections; while meningitis and endocarditis are rare presentations, they are marked with serious morbidity and mortality. Blood cultures confirm S. agalactiae presence. Chronic kidney disease, cardiac failure, history of neoplasia, history of ischemic heart disease, and diabetes mellitus are risks for acquiring agressive S. agalactiae infection.
