Mycoplasma hominis-Associated Parapharyngeal Abscess following Acute Epstein-Barr Virus Infection in a Previously Immunocompetent Adult

Kennedy, Karina; Prince, Sam; Makeham, Timothy


Mycoplasma hominis most frequently causes diseases of the genitourinary tract. Extragenital infections are uncommon, with almost all occurring in immunosuppressed persons or those predisposed due to trauma or surgery. We present the case of a previously well man who developed an M. hominis-associated parapharyngeal abscess following acute Epstein-Barr virus infection.
