  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae Infection

    Mycoplasma pneumonia is an infection of the lungs by the bacteria Mycoplasma pneumoniae (M. pneumoniae). This type of pneumonia is also called atypical pneumonia because the symptoms are different from those of pneumonia due to other common bacteria.People who live or work in crowded areas such as schools and homeless shelters have a high chance of getting this condition. But many people who get sick with it have no known risk factors.

    From 1970 to 1997, diagnostic serological tests for infection with M. pneumoniae in Warsaw were performed on specimens from 25 932 people (5824 by the end of 1984 and 20 108 between 1985 and 1997). Most of the patients were children at preschool and school age with clinical symptoms of respiratory tract infection, - 87% of whom were admitted to hospital. Six epidemics of mycoplasmosis were noted in Warsaw during these studies during the autumn-winter season in 1970/71, 1975/76, 1980/81, 1985/86, 1991/92, and 1995/96.

    MP is a bacterial infection the first line of treatment is antibiotics. Antibiotics must differ for children to avoid any potentially dangerous side effects. Macrolides, the first choice of antibiotics for children, include:erythromycin, clarithromycin, roxithromycin, azithromycin. Antibiotics prescribed for adults include: doxycycline, tetracycline, quinolones, Corticosteroids. Not all people respond to antibiotic treatment. Treatment for those who are unresponsive to antibiotics or complications of illness include corticosteroids.

    Future studies, with new molecular techniques to better detect infections due to the wide range of pathogens, will broaden our understanding of the cause of pneumonia and may highlight which pathogens should be the targets for new vaccines. Despite the lack of data, mainly for the developing regions of the world, morbidity and mortality estimates and the main risk factors presented in this review could contribute to an understanding of the burden of acute lower respiratory infections.
