Although Mycoplasmataceae family members are also capable of damaging the conjunctiva, the clinical value of this fact has been unknown [12].
Positive PCR determinations for detection of genetic material of Mycoplasmataceae species (MH, MG, and UU) and three other microorganisms (NG, CT and TV) obtained from samples of both endocervix and Fallopian tubes flushings from 60 patients, 30 of them with a tubo-peritoneal infertility factor diagnosed through laparoscopy, and 30 fertile patients with normal tubes and peritoneum at laparoscopy are detailed in Table 1.
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).
