Frequency of Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma species in cervical samples.
J Obstet Gynaecol 2011; 31(3):237-41JO

Abstract

We investigated the relative frequencies of Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma sp. in cervical samples. PCR analyses were performed in ectocervical and endocervical samples from 224 patients attending public health services in Belo Horizonte and Contagem, Minas Gerais Brazil. A high prevalence of colonisation of the cervix (6.3% for C. trachomatis, 4.0% for N. gonorrhoeae, 0.9% for M. genitalium, 21.9% for M. hominis, 38.4% for Ureaplasma sp.) was demonstrated not only for pathogens classically associated to cervicitis (C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae), but also for M. hominis and Ureaplasma sp. These findings may be useful to guide more adequate diagnosis to interrupt transmission and to avoid negative impacts on the female reproductive tract.
