Mycoplasma hominis mycoplasmemia was associated with obstruction, manipulation, or surgery of the genitourinary tract in five adult men. A fourfold increase in specific antibody titer against M hominis was demonstrated in serial convalescent serum obtained from one patient. Two patients became afebrile after treatment with tetracycline; a third recovered without therapy for a Mycoplasma infection. The two remaining patients died of their underlying diseases.
