  • Product Description

This study was to determine the prevalence of Ureaplasma urealiticum and Mycoplasma hominis infection in women attending the University of Yaounde teaching Hospital (UYTH). Genital mycoplasma was found in 65% patients and distributed as 41% for Ureaplasma urealiticum and 4% for Mycoplasma hominis whilst there was co infection in 20% women. There was no relationship between genital Mycoplasmas and age group. In this study 57% had other organisms which included C. albicans 19%, G. vaginalis 35% and T. vaginalis 3%. Amongst the 65 women with genital mycoplasma, the highest coinfection was with G. vaginalis (33.8%). Antibiotic sensitivity showed Pristinamycine (PT) as the most sensitive antibiotic with 92% sensitivity and Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (SXT) as the most resistant with a sensitivity of 8%. There is a relationship between genital Mycoplasma infection and C. albicans, G. vaginalis and T vaginalis. Abstinence and the use of condoms should be encouraged. Infected women should be treated together with their partners.
