It is difficult to estimate the number of annual cases of Staphylococcus food poisoning because its symptoms are so similar to those caused by other food-borne bacteria.
The most common bacteria associated with UTIs in women (including teens) are: Escherichia coli (approximately 80% of cases), Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, and Proteus species.
Named for the golden color of the bacteria grown under laboratory conditions, Staphylococcus aureus is a hardy organism that can survive in extreme temperatures or other inhospitable circumstances.
Other bacteria that can cause otitis externa include Enterobacter aerogenes, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and bacteria of the family called Streptococci.
A variety of bacteria cause food poisoning, including Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter jejuni, Escherichia coli, Shigella, and Clostridium botulinum.
The bacterial species most commonly found in animal bite wounds include Pasteurella multocida, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas sp., and Streptococcus sp.
Styes and internal hordeola in children are usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacterial infections that are transmitted from a child's eyes and nose.
It is estimated that 50 percent of healthy people have staphylococcus organisms in their nasal passages and throats and on their skin and hair.
Bacterial conjunctivitis can occur in adults and children and is caused by organisms such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Hemophilus.
Adults are more frequently infected with bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Staphylococcus aureus.
