Abstract

© 2022 University of Ankara. All rights reserved.Objective: In this study, the presence of Ureaplasma urealyticum (U.urealyticum) in vaginal and urine samples taken from sexually active women was investigated and antibiotic susceptibilities were determined with culturing bacteria and using kits. Material and Method: The vaginal and urine samples taken from 110 women who applied to Başkent University Ankara Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic were included in this study. U. urealyticum was investigated by the culture method with using two different test kits [Mycoplasma IES (IES-Autobio, China) and Mycoplasma IST2 (IST2) Biomereux, France] and Mycoplasma Agar. Antibiotic susceptibilities of isolates were also determined. Result and Discussion: We compared the results of (IES) and (IST2) used for U. urealyticum detection in 220 clinical samples. U. urealyticum was found to be positive in 82 (74,5%) by classical culture method. U. urealyticum was detected at a rate of 46.8% with the IST 2 and 53.6% with the IES. As a result of the comparison of culture method and commercial kits,it was determined that the IES kit provides a fast and accurate identification in the detection of U.urealyticum,a fast and reliable result in the detection of antibiotic resistance.A significant difference was found in the detection rate of U. urealyticum of the IES compared to the other commercial kit.It was observed that the detection rate of U. urealyticum with the kit from vaginal were significantly higher than urine samples.
