Aerococcus urinae is an uncommon urinary tract pathogen that causes infections predominantly in elderly persons with local or general predisposing conditions. During a one-year study, the clinical features ofAerococcus urinae urinary tract infections (≥105 cfu/ml) were investigated in two large medical microbiology laboratories in the Netherlands.


Aerococcus urinae is a rare organism infrequently isolated from cultures. Mostly known to cause urinary tract infection, it can cause bacteremia leading to severe urosepsis and infective endocarditis. Embolization is frequently reported with Aerococcus urinae endocarditis (AUE); hence, the presentation is highly variable.

Aerococcus urinae

Aerococcus urinae is a rarely reported pathogen, possibly due to difficulties in the identification of the organism. A. urinae is a gram-positive coccus that grows in pairs and clusters, produces alpha-hemolysis on blood agar, and is negative for catalase and pyrrolidonyl aminopeptidase. Some of these characteristics and its being absent from the databases of most commercial identification

Aerococcus urinae is a pathogen that rarely causes severe or fatal infections. We describe four cases of severe A. urinae bloodstream infections. All patients had underlying urologic conditions. Urine cultures, however, were negative.

Firstly, Aerococcus urinae (as its name suggests) is a significant cause of infection of the urinary tract and so our lady does indeed have a UTI. However, as they are not recognised in urine cultures they are often missed and patients end up with chronic infections which are treated more by luck than judgement. Aerococcus urinae muodostaa verimaljalle viljeltynä 24 tunnin inkubaatioajalla hiilidiok- sidiolosuhteissa pieniä noin 0,5 mm kokoisia pesäkkeitä, jotka ovat ulkonäöltään kupe- ria, läpikuultavia ja kiiltäviä (Christensen – Ruoff 2015: 428).

A. urinae has been isolated from urine collected from both males and females with a wide range of clinical conditions, including urinary tract infection (UTI), urgency urinary incontinence (UUI), and overactive bladder (OAB). A. urinae is of particular clinical concern because it is highly Aerococcus urinae can, in older males with underlying urinary tract conditions, cause invasive infections such as urosepsis or infective endocarditis. The prognosis of invasive aerococcal infections appears to be relatively favourable despite the old age of patients and their many comorbidities.
