Probable clinical and microbial associations of genital mycoplasmas were investigated. Archive records of 290 female patients with Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum were reviewed. A strong association was present between Mycoplasma hominis and bacterial vaginosis (BV) (OR: 4.8; 95% CI: 2.65-8.69) and absence of normal vaginal flora (NVF) (OR: 3.08; 95% CI: 1.76-5.39). Ureaplasma urealyticum was associated with BV (OR: 4.419; 95% CI: 2.43-8.03, p 1) (p=0.045) and contraceptive…

Seroprevalence of (Toxoplasma gondii, CMV, Rubella and HSV1&2) in Aborted Women in Basra, Southern of Iraq
The widespread of IgG and IgM antibodies to TORCH (Toxoplasma gondii, Rubella virus, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes simplex virus) agents were investigated in women with Bad Obstetric History and relationship between aborted women age distribution was important.


Vaginal flora changes associated with Mycoplasma hominis.
The study suggests that Mycoplasma hominis is associated with a number of genital signs and symptoms even after exclusion of bacterial vaginosis.
The association of Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalium with bacterial vaginosis: observations on heterosexual women and their male partners
Overall, M. genitalium behaved somewhat similar to Chlamydia trachomatis and was the least commonly occurring mycoplasma, a reflection perhaps of the relatively low incidence of partner change in this study population.
Lower Genital Tract Infections in Women: Comparison of Clinical and Epidemiologic Findings with Microbiology
This study screened 392 women attending the Laboratory of Microbiology of Toulouse Purpan Hospital for symptoms of lower genital tract infection for six microorganisms to determine the relative prevalence of these microorganisms in relation to clinical and epidemiologic findings.
Association of Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum with some indicators of nonspecific vaginitis.
Both microorganisms were more frequently isolated in women with acid vaginal pH, amine-like odor in KOH test, clue cells and leucorrhea, and these tests could also suggest the presence of these mycoplasmas.
Genital mycoplasmas among pregnant women in Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa: prevalence and risk factors
Young age, low educational level, antimicrobial chemotherapy before consultation and presence of bacterial vaginosis were factors independently associated with M. hominis colonization.
Vaginal Microflora Associated With Bacterial Vaginosis in Nonpregnant Women: Reliability of Sialidase Detection
The data demonstrate a strong association between G. vaginalis, M. hominis, and P. bivia and BV and sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of sialidase activity represent accurate methods for diagnosing BV.
A clinical study on the association of Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma hominis infections in women attending a sexually transmitted disease (STD) outpatient clinic.
Swabs from the posterior vaginal fornix were obtained from 804 consecutive female patients visiting a large Dutch sexually transmitted diseases (STD) outpatient clinic and an in vivo association between the PCR-detected presence of M. hominis and T. vaginalis was established.
Few microorganisms associated with bacterial vaginosis may constitute the pathologic core: a population-based microbiologic study among 3596 pregnant women.
There is a microbial foundation for bacterial vaginosis, and it is possibly due to an intermicrobial interaction in which the microorganisms G. vaginalis, anaerobic bacteria, and M. hominis are dominating, indicating that these constitute the pathologic core of bacterialvaginosis.
Pathogenic potential of Gardnerella vaginalis on the female urogenital system.
The prevalence of certain characteristics of genital discharge like watery variety in sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic 34% and in gynaecology clinic 26.6%, and fishy odour in STD clinic 29.2%, did not show difference in the aforesaid clinics, while the preponderance of watery discharge in the STD clinic appears to be related to G vaginalis.
Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma
This chapter provides a summary and critical review of methods suitable for detection and characterization of mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas of humans with emphasis on molecular genotypic techniques.
