Abstract

This study examined the prevalence of Mycoplasma genitalium in incarcerated men from Far North Queensland as well as the prevalence of macrolide resistance in identified isolates. Overall, eight out of 140 [5.71% (95% CI 1.82-9.60)] urine samples tested positive and two out of eight (25%) samples carried a mutation in the 23S rRNA gene associated with macrolide resistance.
