It is my understanding that myecolplasma freely exist on our skin surface and they tend to infect cell cultures while handling them with dirty hands or gloves. I haven't heard of a case where the reverse is true, simply because we are NOT immunocompromised creatures.

Dear Dr. McKay,
I just read your 1998 message regarding a mycoplasma infection.  You asked if you could have infected your tissue culture.  I am now curious - could the mycoplasma infection in the tissue culture have infected you?
I look forward to your response.
