Pathogen description: Ureaplasma urealyticum is bacterium belonging to the family Mycoplasmataceae. U. urealyticum consists of 14 serovars that can be divided into two biovars, biovars 1 and biovars 2, on the basis of genotypic characteristics. Evidence has been presented that the species is currently known as U. urealyticum should be separated into two species, namely U. parvum (previously U. urealyticum biovar 1) and U. urealyticum (previously, U. urealyticum biovar 2). The majority of human Ureaplasma isolates belong to the new species U. parvum, Ureaplasma sp. is the main cause of non-gonococcal, non-chlamydial urethritis, acute prostatitis and acquired arthritis in me. In pregnant and non-pregnant women, Ureaplasma can cause chorioamnionitis and pre-term delivery, abortion, pre-term birth, vaginitis and cervicities. Clinical studies have demonstrated that infants born to infected mothers become infected with these bacteria, and colonization of the respiratory tract of infants has been associated with pneumonia, respiratory tract of infants has been associated with pneumonia, respiratory distress and meningitis.
