Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mycoplasma hominis is a bacteria that colonizes and infects the genitourinary tract; extragenital infections are not common. Three surgical site infections because of M hominis in immunocompetent adult trauma patients were detected at our facility in a 6-month time period. We investigated this case series and hypothesize transmission based on common exposures.
