Purulent pericarditis due to Mycoplasma hominis is rare, and is usually associated with mediastinitis or pleuritis following cardiothoracic surgery. We report the first case to our knowledge of isolated purulent pericarditis caused by M. hominis in a lung transplant recipient and review previously reported cases of this disease.
