Description:After 24 hours, this inoculated MacConkey agar culture plate cultivated colonial growth of Gram-negative, rod-shaped and facultatively anaerobic Proteus penneri bacteria.
Normally found in the humans gastrointestinal tract, Proteus spp. is an opportunistic pathogen, which means that it is usually not a cause of disease, however, under immunocompromised circumstances this bacterium can be found the culprit responsible for urinary tract infections such as cystitis and pyelonephritis.
