Mycoplasma, formerly known as haemobartonella felis, is transmitted by the bite of an infected tick but can also be transmitted from mother cat to kittens or from one infected cat to another during a fight.
Feline hemotropic mycoplasmosis (FHM) formerly known as haemobartonellosis or feline infectious anemia (FIA), is caused by Haemobartonella (H) felis, a gram negative unculturable rickettsial epierythrocytic parasite that causes hemolysis and sequestration of feline red blood cells (Jensen et al., 2001).
En los ultimos anos, luego de los avances en biologia molecular, hubo una gran re-estructuracion en el orden Rickettsiales y las familias que pertenecen a este orden fueron re-clasificadas asi: de la familia Rickettsiaceae fueron removidas las especies Coxiela burnetii y Rickettsiella grylli y fueron re-ubicadas dentro de la familia Legionellaceae (52, 53), los generos Eperythrozoon sp y Haemobartonella sp se movieron a la familia Mycoplasmataceae (54), y por ultimo, en la familia Anaplasmataceae encontramos en la actualidad los generos Ehrlichia sp y Anaplasma sp (1).
