Ureaplasma urealyticum belongs to the family Mycoplasmataceae and is part of the normal genital flora and is found in about 70% of sexually active humans. It can also cause disease, including non-specific urethritis (NSU), infertility, chorioamnioitis, stillbirth, premature birth, and, in the perinatal period, pneumonia or meningitis. There are six recognised Ureaplasma species, They have a G+C content of 27 - 30 mol%, and a genome size ranging between 0.76 - 1.17 Gbp, and cholesterol is required for growth. A defining characteristic of the genus is that they perform urea hydrolysis.

Ureaplasma urealyticum formerly consisted of 2 biovars. Biovar 1, which includes serovars 1, 3, 6, and 14 has been designated U. parvum, while biovar 2 (serovars 1, 4, 5, and 7-13) has been designated U. urealyticum.
