Seminar | Mycoplasma genitalium: antimicrobial resistance and implications for management

Summary Mycoplasma genitalium is an established cause of urethritis and cervicitis and has recently been shown to increase the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, spontaneous abortion and pre-term delivery. Lacking a peptidoglycan containing cell wall, M.genitalium has limited susceptibility to currently available classes of antimicrobials and has displayed a marked propensity to develop antimicrobial resistance […]
