Ureaplasma: pathogen or passenger in neonatal meningitis?

Clifford, V., Tebruegge, M., Everest, N. and Curtis, N. (2010) Ureaplasma: pathogen or passenger in neonatal meningitis? Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 29, (1), pp. 60-64. (doi:10.1097/INF.0b013e3181b21016). (PMID:19910840).

Record type: Article


The significance of Ureaplasma species as pathogens in neonatal meningitis remains contentious. Using an illustrative case of a premature infant with Ureaplasma parvum meningitis, confirmed by cerebrospinal fluid cultures and both specific and 16s rDNA polymerase chain reaction, we discuss the epidemiology of Ureaplasma species, the difficulties involved in diagnosis and establishing pathogenicity, and the challenges in defining appropriate treatment.
