Anon - There are two types of Streptococcal infections, Group A and Group B. While it's not very common, both can be found in urine
cultures. Both are treated with antibiotics. You can find more information at this link: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/streptococcalinfections.html

Thanks, Pat,
I'd never heard of such a thing until I got that result this afternoon. I feel better after having used the link you so graciously provided.
Thanks so much!
