Mycoplasma haemohominis as a cause of fever of unknown origin in a traveller

Abstract

Candidatus mycoplasma haemohominis (cMh) is the most human-adapted and lethal haemoplasma. Bats are the common reservoir worldwide. cMh should be suspected in fever of unknown origin associated with splenomegaly, and haemolytic anaemia or haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, above all in Asia Pacific travellers. Doxycycline should be started preemptively as diagnosis can be retrospectively confirmed.
