Is it bacteria or viruses?Mycoplasma pneumoniae should not be ignored

Pneumonia is a disease with a high incidence in clinical practice, mostly caused by various pathogenic bacteria infection.
Symptoms include cough, sputum, fever, chest pain and so on, which require anti-infection treatment against pathogenic bacteria.
The pathogenic bacteria that causes pneumonia is bacterium for the most part, have pneumoniae streptococcus, staphylococcus aureus, haemophilus influenzae, pseudomonas aeruginosa, pneumoniae klebsiella to wait commonly.
Atypical pathogenic bacteria include mycoplasma, chlamydia, Legionella and so on.
Viral pneumonia is common in influenza virus, adenovirus, respiratory syncytial virus and so on.
A small number of pneumonia is caused by fungal infections such as Candida, Aspergillus and Cryptococcus.
Only to find out the cause of better treatment, here we introduce a mycoplasma pneumoniae.
Most pneumonia caused by mycoplasma pneumoniae are caused by mycoplasma pneumoniae. Mycoplasma fermentum has been isolated from alveolar lavage fluid of some immunodeficiency patients and patients with respiratory tract infection, and is considered to be a pathogenic pathogen of respiratory tract.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae was first described in the 1960s and had been mistaken for a virus until then.
20% of community acquired pneumonia was caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae, especially in school-age children, middle-aged and young adults.
In recent years, it has been found that the strain can cause local epidemics in the elderly and children.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae has an incubation period of 2-3 weeks, is commonly transmitted within families, and can remain in the respiratory tract for several months after infection.
The most common clinical manifestation is bronchitis, even acute laryngitis, and about 1/3 of patients will progress to pneumonia;
In addition, it can cause serious extrapulmonary complications in some people, such as meningitis, myelitis and pericarditis.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae could not be clearly observed by conventional light microscopy. Due to the lack of Gram staining on the cell wall, it could not be stained. DNA fluorescence staining and acridine-orange staining were helpful for diagnosis, but did not have specificity.
At present, the rapid detection methods in clinical mainly include serological detection and nucleic acid detection.
