The dimension of its bacterial colony is as a needlepoint, so it is also called micro-mycoplasma. Mycoplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis can result in urinary infection mainly through sexual contact and minority also infect indirectly with permissive cell of urinary system. It's insensitive for antibiotics which can affect the synthesis of cellwall such as penicillin, etc. because it has no cellwall. But antibiotics which effect on ribosome such as erythromycin, tetracycline, kanamycin, streptomycin, chloramphenicol, etc. can inhibit or affect the protein synthesis of mycoplasma with the effect of inhibiting mycoplasma.
