is it possible to have these 2 genes and have a staphylococcus aureus in a throat sampling for bronchiolitis? Because the 5T gene is a mild gene and I have never heard of Staphylococcus aureus for a patient with this combination of genes.

Staphyococcus aureus (or staphylococcus aureus) is a germ very often found in the throat of the general population when it is sought systematically, that is to say even in the absence of an infection of the throat or the airways. It can be found in the same way in the throat of a person with cystic fibrosis regardless of the mutations involved. The decision of an antibiotic treatment therefore depends more on the clinical context (existence of an ENT or bronchial infection) than on the type of the mutations.

Hoping to have answered your question and wish you a happy New Year.
