Dr. N. W. Pirie served as chairman of the symposium on pathogenic mycoplasmas, held in London during January of 1972 and recorded in this book. The title, although technically accurate, might be misleading to the physician, since scant attention is given to the role of mycoplasmas in human disease. Rather, this book updates the biological and biochemical properties of the mycoplasmas; reviews the role of mycoplasmas and mycoplasma-like organisms in certain diseases of plants, insects, and animals; and describes several experimental models for studying the pathogenesis of mycoplasmal infections. The only primarily clinical contribution is M. H. William's presentation of
Pathogenic Mycoplasmas. A Ciba Foundation Symposium.. Ann Intern Med. 1973;79:147. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-79-1-147_1
