Abstract

We aim to clarify the prevalence of Mycoplasma genitalium in asymptomatic men in Japan. First-catch urine specimens were obtained from 187 asymptomatic Japanese men and examined for the presence of M. genitalium using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assay. Two (1.1%) of 187 first-catch urine specimens were positive for M. genitalium. The prevalence of M. genitalium in urine specimens of asymptomatic men in Japan is lower than that in asymptomatic men in the UK (6%) and Denmark (9%).
