Abstract:

Background: Neisseria are usually harmless inhabitants of otherwise asymptomatic persons’ upper respiratory mucosal surfaces.

Method: It is, therefore, expected that a disturbance in the physiology leads to nongonococcal, non-meningococcal Neisseria becoming pathogenic.

Result: We report the case of a diabetic man who initially presented with nonspecific symptoms and was later found to have cystitis caused by N. oralis.

Conclusion: We also review the pertinent literature and discuss available evidence on pathophysiological mechanisms of infection with such commensal bacteria.

Keywords: Neisseria, non-gonococcal, non-meningococcal, pathogenic, inhabitants, cystitis.
