Abstract

Mollicutes can cause a wide spectrum of disease, especially in neonates. To better define their disease spectrum in the United States, we reviewed the results of >14,000 mollicute isolates, including 1346 from neonates. When mollicute infection is suspected, clinicians should alert laboratories, which will optimize methods of detection.
