Oligella sp. usually cause infections of the urogenital tract. Genus Oligella consists of two types, Oligella urethralis and O. ureolytica. O. urethralisist a kommensalischer residents of the urogenital tract, most clinical isolates derived from the urine, especially by men. Although it is rarely symptomatic infections, one of the gonoccocal was isolated over bacteremia, reports resembling septic arthritis and peritonitis. O. ureolytica is primarily present in the urine, usually in patients with urinary indwelling catheters or other urinary drainage systems. These patients tend to form kidney stones, possibly hydrolyzed as the pathogen urea and alkalized the urine, resulting in the precipitation of phosphates. In a patient with obstructive uropathy, there was a bacteremia. The diagnosis of Oligella infections is provided by the cultural detection of pathogens. Since these pathogens are rarely isolated, data on the antimicrobial susceptibility are limited; usually they are sensitive to beta-lactam antibiotics. a beta-lactamase-producing strain and ciprofloxacin-resistant strains have been identified, however, already.
