The original two strains of Mycoplasma genitalium were isolated from the human urogenital tract. No other strains have been isolated from this site since then. We have recently succeeded in propagating a third strain from a urogenital specimen from a patient with urethritis in Vero cell cultures. By electron microscopy mycoplasmas were demonstrated intracellularly in about 10% of the examined Vero cells. Various stages of penetration into the cells could be observed. The flask-shaped organisms… CONTINUE READING
