Epidemiological study of mycoplasma pneumoniae infection in nakhon ratchasima thailand

Epidemiological study of mycoplasma pneumoniae infection in nakhon ratchasima thailand
An epidemiological study of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections in the upcountry of Thailand was demonstrated for the first time in a secondary in Nakhon Ratchasima province. The index case was a 13-year-old schoolgirl suffering from pneumoniae caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae in late December 1985. A survey of the infections based on serological studies of 71 cases: 50 students, 14 teachers and 7 family contacts was conducted. Four cases were found to have "diagnostic" recent Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections and two cases were found to have "probable" recent Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections. There were two cases with borderline Mycoplasma pneumoniae titres and ten cases with abnormal cold aggulutinin tires alone. Hence, there were totally eighteen cases with abnormal titers. Except for the index case, other affected cases had only upper respiratory tract infections. Tetracycline was chosen to control the diseases. The study was observed until September 1986 without evidence of any new occurrence.
