This prospective cohort study of 622 women living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from Johannesburg (2012) detected Mycoplasma genitalium in 7.4% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.5-9.7, 46/622), with detection more likely with lower CD4 counts(adjusted odds ratio [AOR] 1.02 per 10 cells/μL decrease, 95% CI: 1.00-1.03) and higher plasma HIV-1 RNA (AOR 1.15 per log copies/mL increase, 95% CI: 1.03-1.27). No mutations for macrolide/quinolone resistance was detected.
