Abstract:

Mycoplasmas are one of the smallest bacteria and are divided into two groups, haemotropic and non-haemotropic mycoplasmas. Hemotrophic mycoplasmas (hemoplasmas) are uncultivable cell wall-less bacteria, previously known as Haemobartonella and Eperythrozoon species. They are gram-negative, obligate red cell parasites and it is considered as pleomorphic. They can be seen as rod, spherical, or ring-shaped organisms and are found individually or in chains across the red cell surface. Hemoplasmas can cause acute hemolytic anemia in dogs and cats. The clinical spectrum of infection ranges from asymptomatic to life threatening, depending partially on host susceptibility. There are also reports in rats (H. muris), raccoons (H. procyoni), an opossum, monkeys and human beings.
