Purple urine bag syndrome: a case report

Vikas Makkar, Amit Mann.

Abstract
Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is a unique disease entity characterized by an alarming purple discoloration of the urine secondary to bacterial urinary tract infection with indigo- and indirubin-producing bacteria. This syndrome occurs particularly in alkaline urine due to reaction of infected urine with catheter tubing or urine bag. Here, we report a case of 60-year-old diabetic woman with neurogenic bladder and acute kidney injury who was diagnosed to be having PUBS.

Key words: Purple urine bag syndrome, urinary catheter, urinary tract infection
