BACKGROUND We previously reported a significant association between Ureaplasma urealyticum (biovar 2) and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). We also found that the presence of Ureaplasma parvum (biovar 1) in the male urethra might be the result of colonization. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to clarify the pathogenic role of human Ureaplasma in NGU by assessing the association of bacterial loads with clinical findings and inflammatory responses in the urethra.
