Abstract

Hemotropic mycoplasmas are bacteria that infect erythrocytes and cause sub-clinical infections to life-threatening disease. We describe hemotropic mycoplasma infection in a free-ranging black howler monkey (Alouatta caraya). This is the first molecular detection of a hemotropic mycoplasma in a nonhuman primate from Brazil.
