It is important to take a history of the underlying risk factors for Ureaplasma colonization/infection. Nonspecific symptoms such as irritability, lethargy, convulsions and dyspnea can occur in neonatal infection.[1]

History and Symptoms

  • The site of the body affected by Ureaplasma infection determines the presenting symptom:
  1. Nongonococcal urethritis can present with dysuria and urethral discharge. It can also be asymptomatic.
  2. Ureaplasma pneumonia presents with symptoms similar to other bacterial pneumonia such as fever, labored breathing, etc.
