    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a significant cause of community-acquired pneumonia, which is often empirically treated with macrolides or azalides such as erythromycin or azithromycin. Recent studies have discovered the existence of macrolide-resistant strains within the population that have been mapped to mutations within the domain V region of the 23S rRNA gene. Currently, identification of these resistant strains relies on timeconsuming and labor-intensive procedures such as restriction fragment length polymorphism, MIC studies, and sequence analysis...

    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a human pathogen. The bacteria live on mucosal surfaces of the respiratory tract and cause diseases such as mild pneumonia and tracheobronchitis. In addition, some nonrespiratory complications affecting the skin, mucosa, the central nervous system, the heart, and other organs were reported (14, 18, 24). During the last few years, M. pneumoniae and related cell wall-less bacteria of the class Mollicutes have attracted considerable scientific interest since these bacteria possess one of the smallest genomes of any free-living organism known so far (9)...

    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a bacterial pathogen of the human respiratory tract that causes a wide range of airway diseases as well as extrapulmonary symptoms. It possesses a distinct, differentiated terminal structure, termed the attachment organelle, that mediates adherence to the host respiratory epithelium...

    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common agent of infections of the human respiratory tract, with clinical courses ranging from mild forms of pharyngitis and tracheobronchitis to severe cases of interstitial pneumonia (11). Epidemiological studies have shown that M. pneumoniae is responsible for up to 50% of community-acquired pneumonias (7, 15, 26). Epidemic outbreaks were registered in time intervals between 3 and 7 years (16, 22), leading to the hypothesis that different subtypes of M...

    • Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a small bacterium without a cell wall that causes tracheobronchitis and atypical pneumonia in humans. It has also been associated with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, and extrapulmonary complications, such as encephalitis...
