Sexually transmitted Mycoplasma genitalium infection is difficult to treat
Mycoplasma genitalium infection is sexually transmitted, and it is almost as common as chlamydia in most European settings. Symptoms are indistinguishable from those of chlamydia, and late sequelae are believed to be similar. Treatment of M. genitalium infection is complicated due to widespread antimicrobial resistance not only to first-line azithromycin but now also increasingly to second-line moxifloxacin, leaving no other antibiotics registered in Denmark available for effective treatment. In the absence of available antimicrobials, screening of asymptomatic individuals should be avoided.
