Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is a rare and striking manifestation associated with urinary tract infection involving bright purple discoloration of the lining and tubing of a urinary catheter bag. We present the interesting case of a 90-year-old female patient who developed PUBS and include a review of the relevant literature to date. Uniquely, in this case, PUBS acts as an important clinical sign in supporting the diagnosis of urinary tract infection in a high-risk patient.

Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is rarely observed in clinical practice. The present study aimed to identify the epidemiological trends in PUBS in recent decades. A search of PubMed articles published between 1980 October and 2016 August was conducted, in which 106 articles (174 cases) described PUBS. Of these cases, 58 cases were excluded: 14 cases without mention of gender, 4 cases without description of age, 37 cases without mention of white blood cell (WBC) count, shock status, fever status or description of etiology, and 3 cases without information on mortality...

Purple urine-bag syndrome is a rare condition that occurs in patients with indwelling urinary catheters carried over a long period and frequently associated with a urinary tract infection. It is characterized by the appearance of a violet coloration of the probe and/or the urine collection bag. We report the first case in West Africa that occurred in a 47-year-old woman in uremic encephalopathy and carrier of a urinary catheter, which presented a violet color of the tubing and urine-bag associated with a urinary tract infection...

The bacterium Providencia stuartii, is associated with urinary tract infections and is the most common cause of purple urine bag syndrome. The increasing multi-drug resistance pattern shown by the pathogen and lack of licensed vaccines make treatment of infections caused by P. stuartii challenging. As vaccinology data against the pathogen is scarce, an in silico proteome based Reverse Vaccinology (RV) protocol, in combination with subtractive proteomics is introduced in this work to screen potential vaccine candidates against P...

Purple urine bag syndrome is an uncommon condition that describes the purple discolouration of a catheter bag and tubing. It mainly affects patients with limited mobility who have long-term catheters. Although benign in nature per se, its presence can alarm both patient and practitioner unfamiliar with the syndrome. Here, we describe two cases of asymptomatic patients who both presented to outpatient clinic with the characteristic purple discolouration of their long-term catheters and tubing. The report discusses the pathophysiology of the syndrome and initial investigation and management...

Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is a unique phenomenon characterized by purple discoloration of the urinary catheter bag and tubing following urinary catheterization lasting for hours to days. The purple discoloration is a mixture of indirubin dissolved in plastic with indigo on its surface. PUBS is most commonly associated with urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by bacteria with indoxyl phosphatase/sulfatase activity. It occurs predominantly in chronically catheterized, constipated elderly female patients...

CASE REPORT: A 57-year-old paraplegic male diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and complete spinal cord compression arrived at our clinic because of fever and purple discoloration of the urine. We diagnosed purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) and treated him with oral ciprofloxacin and urinary catheter replacement. DISCUSSION: PUBS is an unusual phenomenon that occurs predominantly in bedridden patients with long-term urinary catheters, presenting as a purple discoloration of the urine bag...

We report a case of purple urine bag syndrome, associated to Streptococcus agalactiae urinary tract infection, progressing to septic shock and death. We present a review of the literature on the subject and take the opportunity to attend readers about increasing incidence with population aging and its potential bad outcome.

Purple Urine Bag Syndrome (PUBS) refers to the purple discoloration of urine and is commonly observed in bed ridden patients with long-term urinary catheters. Although typically benign, the purple discoloration is alarming to both the patients and their attendants. This case report presents an uncommon case of PUBS in a 60-year-old lady with hypertension, type II diabetes, and chronic kidney disease stage 5, who presented to the emergency room with bilateral diabetic foot ulcers of 3 months duration, dry gangrene of ring finger and infected middle and little fingers with abscess over the palmar aspect of right hand of 20 days duration...

The purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) i.e. purple discolouration of urine, is an uncommon and alarming condition in patients with long term urinary catheterisation. Though the condition is benign, it should draw immediate attention to the possibility of an underlying urinary tract infection. The postulated hypothesis for this unusual event is probably a chemical reaction involving tryptophan from food in the gut. We report a case with this unusual and interesting phenomenon in a 65 year old female.

Purple urine bag syndrome is an unusual condition that heralds an underlying urinary tract infection, in which certain bacteria produce a purple discolouration within the catheter bag of affected cases. It is most often seen in elderly women with constipation. While alarming, it can be resolved by treating the infection causing it. This report presents an elderly patient who developed the condition while an inpatient, and discusses the pathogenesis behind the condition.

Morganella morganii belongs to the tribe Proteeae of the Enterobacteriaceae family. This species is considered as an unusual opportunistic pathogen that mainly causes post-operative wound and urinary tract infections. However, certain clinical M. morganii isolates present resistance to multiple antibiotics by carrying various resistant genes (such as blaNDM-1, and qnrD1), thereby posing a serious challenge for clinical infection control. Moreover, virulence evolution makes M. morganii an important pathogen...

Purple bag urine syndrome (PUBS) is a benign and unique phenomenon of the urine turning a deep violet color within the urinary catheter tubing and bag. This phenomenon is commonly encountered in patients indicated with long-term catheter placement or, in certain conditions like chronic constipation, alkaline urine, limited ambulation, and, in terms of gender distribution, the female sex, predominates. PUBS gets its name from a unique phenomenon that takes places inside the gut where tryptophan (an amino acid) is metabolized, producing blue and red hues which together emanate a deep violet color...

Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is an uncommon condition that occurs mainly in chronically catheterized patient and associated with urinary tract infection. It is characterised by purple discolouration of urine bag which leads to significant stress and anxiety to patient, care takers and health workers, so awareness regarding this condition is of utmost importance. In our report, an old gentleman with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) on per urethral catheter (PUC) with past history of recurrent urinary tract infection developed burning micturition of urine with purple discoloration of urine bag...
