Abstract

Ureaplasma urealyticum is a urogenital commensal and often associated with localised infection. With the advent of monoclonal immunosuppressive therapy and improved diagnostic methods, reports of non-urogenital infections are accumulating. We report a rare case of U. urealyticum necrotizing soft tissue infection and left hip septic arthritis in a hypogammaglobulinaemic patient. Consideration of this organism as an etiological agent, and potential early use of nucleic-acid diagnostic investigation with empiric therapy including activity against Ureaplasma in this patient population may be warranted.
