Bacterial Otitis


Cytology from a bacterial ear infection.

This slide was from a patient with a bacterial outer ear infection. The large cell is a skin cell and surrounding is many small rod shaped bacteria. We cannot identify the bacteria on cytology. That would require a bacterial culture and identification from a reference lab.
