Various symptoms of infection are known like urethritis (in men), discharge (both sexes), burning while urinating (both sexes), arthritis/reactive arthritis (mostly men), vaginal itching (women) as well as pain during intercourse (women).
Mycoplasma hominis is a fastidious microorganism causing systemic infections in the neonate and genital infections in the adult. It can also be the cause of serious extra-genital infections, mainly in immunosuppressed or predisposed subjects.
