Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction
Mycoplasma hominis was first identified as a cause of inflammatory urogenital disease in men but has since been implicated in causing pelvic inflammatory disease/cervicitis in women. Because of its fastidious nature, this organism is not routinely cultured and is better detected by molecular methods. PCR allows for rapid detection of M. hominis.
