    Default Uraplasma is Mycoplasma

    I looked up uraplasma in Taber's then looked up mycoplasma with Supercoder.

    Ureaplasma is: A mycoplasma that is usually sexually transmitted.
    It may cause inflammation of the reproductive or urinary tracts in males and females. It has been implicated in a wide variety of infections in babies with low birth weight

    Look up mycoplasma:
    041.81 - Other specified bacterial infections in conditions classified elsewhere and of unspecified site mycoplasma

    Ureaplasma urealyticum is a bacterium belonging to the family Mycoplasmataceae. Its type strain is T960.

    Hope it helps..
