Objective: Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum are opportunistic pathogens which can frequently be isolated from genitourinary tracts of humans. The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence, epidemiologic features and antibiotic susceptibility of M. hominis and U. urealyticum agents in urine specimens which were sent from various clinics of Uludag University, Hospital of Health Application and Research Center for diagnosis of genitourinary system infection.
