Mycoplasma haemofelis (Mhf),

the cause of severe feline infectious hemolytic anemia. Coinfection with M. haemominutum results in enhanced severity of clinical signs. Mhf lacks a cell wall and replicates on the outside of the infected cells; closely related to Eperythrozoon sp.


a genus of highly pleomorphic, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic bacteria that lack cell walls, including the pleuropneumonia-like organisms (PPLO).
