A case of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection followed by Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia

A case of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection followed by Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia

Kansenshogaku Zasshi. Journal of the Japanese Association for Infectious Diseases 64(2): 231-235

A 19-year-old young man was admitted to our hospital complaining of fever and general fatigue. There were infiltrative shadows and pleural effusions in the both lung fields. Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection was diagnosed because of the elevation of mycoplasma antibody titers in the serum and pleural fluid. There was no recovery in clinical symptoms in spite of the administration of the EM (1200 mg) and CLDM (1200 mg) combination chemotherapy. Three week after admission, a cavity-like shadow appeared in the lt. middle lung field on the chest X-ray film, suprative arthritis and penicillin resistant S. aureus by blood culture test were found. Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection followed by S. aureus bacteremia was diagnosed. After the administration of antibiotics (CTT, FMOX) the clinical symptoms and laboratory findings improved 2 month after admission. Clinical and basic studies about the dual infection between M. pneumoniae and several bacteria were discussed.
