Abstract Systemic infections due to Mycoplasma hominis are rare and occur mainly in immunocompromised patients. Reported here are the cases of two renal transplant patients with peritonitis who did not respond to empirical antimicrobial treatment. Effective treatment with doxycycline was administered only after definitive identification of Mycoplasma hominis was achieved. For this identification, the new genetic amplification-sequencing method was invaluable.
