AIIMS November 2011 – MCQ 79

In a patient with urethral syndrome, urine microscopy showed polymorphs with no bacteria. The most appropriate culture medium is?
A. McCoy cells
B. Thayer martin
C. Cooked meat
D. PPLO broth

(Repeat question – AIIMS Nov 06 – AA q76)

Correct answer : a) Mc coy cell line

Common causes of urethral discharge in a young male are gonococcus and chlamydia. But in this case, no organisms were found in the pus cells. This indicates that the cause is probably not gonococcus. So in order to check for presence of chlamydia, we have to use cell culture methods such as Mc coy cells.
