Seroprevalence and involvement of Mycoplasma
gallisepticum (MG) in cases of chronic respiratory disease (CRD) in poultry and pheasantry birds of Northern Pakistan is underreported.
Multigene families encoding the major hemagglutinins in phylogenetically distinct mycoplasmas
(2008; 2011) reported that the seroprevalence values of Ma among sheep, goats, and mixed flocks are 25%, 21%, and 30%; those of the Mmc were 32%, 38%, and 34% in the same study, suggesting that these mycoplasmas
circulate widely among flocks of sheep and goats that are kept together in mixed farms.
Primary peritonitis with Mycoplasma
hominis has been described in the renal transplant population [4-6]; however, there is no known reported case of primary peritonitis caused by Mycoplasma
hominis in a healthy nonimmunocompromised adult.
