Haemoplasma is a zoonotic mycoplasma and act as a cofactor in the progression of retroviral, neoplastic and immune-mediated disease. Haemoplasmas can be transmitted horizontally as well as vertically.The relapse of the haemoplasmosis may coincide with the introduction of systemic glucocorticoids in the treatment of various other diseases. For the identification and control of emerging zoonotic haemoplasmal diseases we require a “One Health” approach, which demands combined efforts of physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, public health workers and urban planners. Collaborative international routine surveillance strategies prompt reliable genetic identification techniques, and optimization of the treatment regiments will ensure the prevention and management of such infections. This review highlights the important haemoplasmas species, classification, diagnosis and their remedy for control of the diseases caused by haemoplasmas. 

Key words: Haemoplasma, Mycoplasma, Immuno-suppression, Zoonotic pathogens
