Introduction to Mycoplasma Pneumonia in the Elderly

Mycoplasma pneumonia is an acute respiratory infection with pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is between viruses and bacteria. It can grow on a cell-free medium without cell walls. It contains RNA and DNA. It produces energy through metabolism. It is often confused with the L-type of bacteria. The colonies of the two are similar. Mycoplasma is the causative agent of various animal diseases. There are currently 8 human Mycoplasma species. Only Mycoplasma pneumoniae can cause respiratory tract infections. It can ferment glucose, etc., and produce hemolysin, which can completely dissolve sheep and guinea pigs within 24 to 48 hours. The red blood cells can be distinguished from other mycoplasmas. Other mycoplasma can cause genitourinary system infections, and generally do not invade the respiratory tract. Mycoplasma pneumoniae often causes upper respiratory tract infections without pneumonia, and can also cause asymptomatic infections. Reports at home and abroad have shown that the incidence of mycoplasma pneumonia has increased significantly in recent years.
