Abstract

We report the clinical symptoms and examination findings of Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) in women living with human immunodeficiency virus in South Africa. If we relied on syndromic management alone to treat MG, only 15 of 46 MG-infected women would have received. appropriate treatment: sensitivity of 32.6% (95% confidence interval, 19.5-48.0) and specificity of 67.4% (95% confidence interval, 63.4-71.2).
