Mycoplasma genitalium is a globally important sexually transmitted pathogen. Men infected with M. genitalium frequently present with dysuria, while women may present with or without urogenital symptoms. In some populations, M. genitalium is significantly associated with HIV-1 infection, and is also an etiological agent in pelvic inflammatory disease. However, there is insufficient evidence to establish a causative role of the organism in obstetric complications, including tubal factor… Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium: a review
TLDR
The association of M. genitalium with non-specific urethritis is now well established, but the evidence supporting its role in both male and female infertility remains inconclusive and the recommended treatment is azithromycin as a single 1 gm dose. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility of Mycoplasma genitalium isolates from Pretoria, South Africa in 2012 and 2016
TLDR
This study compared the genotypic macrolide and fluoroquinolone resistance of M. genitalium strains obtained from women attending a termination of pregnancy clinic five years apart to detect the presence of the pathogen by PCR in vaginal swab samples from two tertiary hospitals in Pretoria, South Africa. Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium Detection in Urogenital Specimens from Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Men and Women by Use of the cobas TV/MG Test
TLDR
The cobas assay was highly sensitive and specific in all relevant clinical samples for the detection of M. genitalium, and was compared to a reference standard of three laboratory-developed tests. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of Mycoplasma genitalium infection among prostatitis patients in Shanghai, China.
TLDR
M. genitalium was prevalent in the patients with prost atitis, particularly in those who received ineffective antibiotic treatment for the bacterium, and was identified as having a significant association of prostatitis. Expand
Urogenital mycoplasmosis and pregnancy
TLDR
Screening of asymptomatic patients for M. hominis, U. urealyticum and U. parvum is currently still not indicated, as no convincing causal relationship has been shown. Expand
Screening for Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Mycoplasma genitalium should it be integrated into routine pregnancy care in French young pregnant women?
TLDR
The high prevalence of C. trachomatis in pregnant women aged ≤24 years, mostly asymptomatic, suggests that systematic screening could be beneficial, and the prevalence and risk factors for these bacterial infections are determined. Expand
Patients with cervical Ureaplasma Urealyticum and Chlamydia Trachomatis infection undergoing IVF/ICSI-ET: The need for new paradigm
Genital tract infections with ureaplasma urealyticum (UU) and chlamydia trachomatis (CT) are the most frequent sexually-transmitted disease worldwide. UU and CT infections are considered to be theExpand
Patients with cervical Ureaplasma Urealyticum and Chlamydia Trachomatis infection undergoing IVF/ICSI-ET: The need for new paradigm
TLDR
Cervical UU and CT infections were the risk factors for ectopic pregnancy and tubal factor-induced infertility and the pregnancy rate, abortion rate, ectopicregnancy rate and premature birth rate in patients with UU/or CT infections showed no significant difference when compared with the control group. Expand
Epidemiology of Mycoplasma genitalium in British men and women aged 16–44 years: evidence from the third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3)
TLDR
This study strengthens evidence that MG is an STI, identified in over 1% of the population, including in men with high-risk behaviours in older age groups that are often not included in STI prevention measures. Expand

A review of the epidemiology, diagnosis and evidence-based management of Mycoplasma genitalium.
TLDR
Accumulating evidence supports an extended regimen of azithromycin for treatment of M. genitalium infection, as data suggest that stat 1 g azITHromycin may be less effective. Expand
Is Mycoplasma genitalium a cause of pelvic inflammatory disease?
  • J. Ross
  • Medicine
  • Infectious disease clinics of North America
  • 2005
TLDR
The evidence is accumulating that M genitalium is a cause of PID, and the assessment of reliable tests to further investigate the importance of this organism and its relevance in designing future treatment strategies is urgently needed. Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium: An Emerging Cause of Sexually Transmitted Disease in Women
TLDR
Collectively, M. genitalium is highly prevalent in high- and low-risk populations, and should be considered an etiologic agent of select reproductive tract disease syndromes in women. Expand
Diagnostic Assessment of Mycoplasma genitalium in Culture-Positive Women
TLDR
Overall, it is shown that neither ELISA nor PCR, alone or in combination, provides the sensitivity required to confidently predict the existence of viable M. genitalium organisms in cervical and vaginal samples. Expand
Evidence for a role of Mycoplasma genitalium in pelvic inflammatory disease
  • C. Haggerty
  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in infectious diseases
  • 2008
TLDR
Strong evidence suggests that M. genitalium is associated with pelvic inflammatory disease and is likely resistant to many frequently used pelvicinflammatory disease treatments. Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium: Is It a Sexually Transmitted Pathogen?
TLDR
To assess whether M. genitalium is sexually transmitted, the literature was evaluated in terms of associations with established risk factors for other sexually transmitted infections, comparisons of sexually experienced individuals to nonsexually experienced individuals, consideration of other modes of transmission, assessment of concordant infection status among sexual partners, and examination of molecular strain typing in concordantly infected partners. Expand
Mycoplasma genitalium: a common cause of persistent urethritis among men treated with doxycycline
TLDR
M genitalium is a common cause of persistent or recurrent urethritis among men treated with doxycycline and erythromycin appears to be less efficient than azithromycin in eradicating the infection. Expand
Macrolide Resistance–associated 23S rRNA Mutation in Mycoplasma genitalium, Japan
TLDR
Mycoplasma genitalium DNA found in the urine of men with NGU was examined for the presence of macrolide resistance–associated mutations in the 23S rRNA gene and the ribosomal protein genes L4 and L22. Expand
High Prevalence of Mycoplasma genitalium in the Lower Genitourinary Tract of Women Attending a Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinic in Paris, France
TLDR
It is indicated that M genitalium is frequently encountered in the female genital tract and is not associated with cervicitis or any particular clinical or microbiologic data. Expand
A serological study of the role of Mycoplasma genitalium in pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy
TLDR
No statistically significant association between PID or EP and M genitalium antibodies could be found using the LAMP-EIA, although a slight tendency toward association was found when focusing on younger individuals. Expand
