Abstract

MONDACA P, Roberto; PIZARRO C, Victoria; CARES, Víctor  and  EYMIN, Gonzalo. Hemolysis, serositis and exanthema induced by Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.10, pp.1334-1337. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872014001000015.

Mycoplasma infections have extrapulmonary manifestations that may be associated with respiratory symptoms and may have skin, heart, gastrointestinal, rheumatologic, neurologic, hematologic involvement. Cold agglutinin mediated autoimmune hemolytic anemia is the most common hematological manifestation. We report a 27-year-old woman infected with Mycoplasma pneumoniae, who presented respiratory involvement with pneumonia, exanthema, serositis and acute hemolytic anemia that required transfusion. The key for the diagnosis were the extrapulmonary manifestations associated with respiratory involvement after five days of hospitalization.

Keywords : Exanthema; Hemolysis; Mycoplasma pneumoniae; Serositis.
