Host: Renée Simone Yolanda Allen, MD, MHSc., FACOG
Guest: Maria Trent, MD, MPH, FAAP, FSAHM
There has been a lot of discussion about a sexually transmitted infection called mycoplasma genitalia or MGen. Chances are that most clinicians have not yet tested for, or have even heard of, this sexually transmitted infection, and yet, it is more prevalent than gonorrhea and has been associated with both asymptomatic and symptomatic infections of male and female genital tracts. In this special edition of Advances in Women’s Health, host, Dr. Renee Allen interviews Dr. Maria Trent, a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland to talk about this STI and share a case study illustrating how difficult MGen is to diagnose and the challenges clinicians face regarding treatment.
