Abstract

Five hundred and thirteen clinical specimens, mainly from patients with urogenital inflammations, were examined forUreaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasmas, including cultures forMycoplasma genitalium. The study yielded 95 isolates ofUreaplasma urealyticum, 37 isolates ofMycoplasma hominis and two isolates ofMycoplasma fermentans, but no growth ofMycoplasma genitalium was obtained. It was concluded thatMycoplasma genitalium is a relatively rare inhabitant of the human urogenital tract in Israel.
