Brief Answer:
its very rare

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Staphylococcus aureus usually cause infection in the skin and respiratory tract. Very rarely does it affect abdominal organ.

In the abdomen, staph infection is generally limited to urinary bladder or the seminal vesicles. very rarely in the abdomen. These can cause lower abdominal pain.

Please clarify the area of staph infection and we can discuss further.

Hope i have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma

Thank you. Well, I don't know if I have a Staph infection, but I am trying to narrow down the causes of my pain. Seminal Vescilitis makes sense, but I have pain in the left lower quadrant as well. (probably separate).

Brief Answer:
needs clinical examination

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Seminal vesiculitis may cause pain in left lower abdomen. But this is unlikely to be diagnosed by ultrasound abdomen as these organs will be deep inside pelvis.

I perform a per rectal digital examination and order transrectal ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis. Your local doctor will know about the tests.

Hope I answered your query.

Regards
