Abstract

We report a hypogammaglobulinemic patient who developed chronic polyarthritis and osteomyelitis due to Ureaplasma urealyticum. He also had mitral valve endocarditis of uncertain origin. Patients with primary antibody deficiency show increased susceptibility to mycoplasma infections. Early diagnosis and treatment is very important in order to prevent potentially debilitating complications.
