Abstract: Mycoplasmagenitalium is one of the major causes of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) worldwide but an uncommon sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the general population. The risk of sexual transmission is probably lower than for Chlamydiatrachomatis. Infection in men is usually asymptomatic and it is likely that most men resolve infection without developing disease.

Antibiotic resistance and recurrence of bacterialvaginosis (BV), a polymicrobial infection, justify the need for novel antimicrobials to counteract microbial resistance to conventional antibiotics... The synergism between CAms and the tested conventional antibiotic may be considered a new, effective, and beneficial method of controlling biofilm-associated bacterialvaginosis.

Insofar as diagnostic tests are available or become available in the near future, clinicians and public health agencies should consider integrating M. genitalium testing into the management of persons with sexually transmitted infection (STI) syndromes associated with the infection (ie urethritis, cervicitis, and pelvicinflammatorydisease) and their sex partners.

Abstract: Mycoplasma genitalium has been associated with infections of the genitourinary tract and prevalence is secondary to Chlamydiatrachomatis The clinical observation of increasing treatment failure indicating antibiotic resistance, especially in cases of recurrent urethritis, has been confirmed by molecular testing. Mutations in the 23S rRNA gene can cause macrolide resistance and topoisomerase/gyrase mutations can cause fluoroquinolone resistance.

Administrative data (eg, United States Census) described health care access (eg, percentage of residents with a primary care provider, percentage of residents with health insurance) in the census tracts where women lived. Sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, or early syphilis) were diagnosed using laboratory testing. Generalized estimating equations were used to determine relationships between tract-level characteristics and STIs.

Seven thousand one hundred eighty-eight STI episodes were managed, 68.2% (4903 episodes) of which were classified as male urethritis and 9.8% (704 episodes) as genitalulcers. Positivity yield for first-time HIV tests was 38.0% (205 positive test results) in MSM, compared with 14.1% (471 positive test results) in other men.
The median surgical wait time was 151 days. Complications included urinary tract infections (56.8%), acute urinary retention (20.5%), genitourinary pain (5.8%), and catheter related issues (15.9. Univariate analysis suggested catheter-dependent status, number of prior endoscopic treatments, hypospadias/trauma etiologies and prior urethroplasty as potential significant predictors of complications. Multivariate analysis yielded only catheter-dependent status (p<0.0001; HR=5.2 ...
Fewer than one-third of men who have sex with men were tested for Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydiatrachomatis as part of HIV medical care in the United States in 2013 to 2014, and only 11.6% were tested for either sexually transmitted disease at an extragenital site..
