In the study presented here, the aim was to investigate the frequency and clinical significance of bacteremia with urogenital mycoplasmas in immunocompetent patients following gynecological surgery. Among 56 patients undergoing elective hysterectomy (mean age, 55 years; range, 32-82 years), Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum were detected in urine by PCR in 2 and 11 patients, respectively. Pre- and postoperative blood samples of the colonized patients were investigated for the colonizing species by PCR. In 4 of the 11 patients colonized by Ureaplasma urealyticum the pathogen was also detected from one of the postoperative blood samples, while no case of bacteremia with Mycoplasma hominis was detected. The postoperative course was uncomplicated in all patients.
