Mycoplasma pneumoniae - Definition


Definition

Mycoplasma pneumonia is a small bacterium of the mycoplasma genus that can colonize the airways. In typical cases, it is responsible for pulmonary infection or disease. Young children are the most commonly affected, and the bacteria is easily transmitted, particularly through spit. Principal symptoms generally manifest slowly, including headache, muscle ache, mild fever, and severe cough. The condition can be revealed by chest x-ray, and is usually referred to as atypical pneumonia, treated with antibiotics.
