Pathology

No data are available.

Diagnosis

The only method available for diagnosis currently is culturing with SP-4 medium under strict anaerobic conditions. No data are available on the use of other methods such as the mycoplasma enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for diagnosis of this infection (McGarrity et al., 1983).

Control

No data are available. The agent presumably can be eliminated by cesarean derivation and barrier maintenance.

Interference with Research

Unknown.
