Multiple mycoplasmal infections detected in blood of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

www.ProHealth.com • December 6, 1999


The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of
different mycoplasmal species in blood samples from patients
with chronic fatigue syndrome and/or fibromyalgia syndrome.

Previously, more than 60% of patients with chronic fatigue
syndrome/fibromyalgia syndrome were found to have mycoplasmal
blood infections, such as Mycoplasma fermentans infection. In
this study, patients with chronic fatigue
syndrome/fibromyalgia syndrome were examined for multiple
mycoplasmal infections in their blood. A total of 91 patients
diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia syndrome
and with a positive test for any mycoplasmal infection were
investigated for the presence of Mycoplasma fermentans,
Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Mycoplasma hominis and Mycoplasma
penetrans in blood using forensic polymerase chain reaction.

Among these mycoplasma-positive patients, infections were
detected with Mycoplasma pneumoniae (54/91), Mycoplasma
fermentans (44/91), Mycoplasma hominis (28/91) and Mycoplasma
penetrans (18/91). Multiple mycoplasmal infections were found
in 48 of 91 patients, with double infections being detected in
30.8% and triple infections in 22%, but only when one of the
species was Mycoplasma pneumoniae or Mycoplasma fermentans.

Patients infected with more than one mycoplasmal species
generally had a longer history of illness, suggesting that
they may have contracted additional mycoplasmal infections
with time.
