Mycoplasma pneumoniae-induced mucositis without rash in an 11-year-old boy.
Clin Case Rep. 2018 03; 6(3):551-552.CC

Abstract

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a frequent cause of childhood pneumonia, and extrapulmonary manifestations may be noted at the time of infection. While M. pneumoniae has long been associated with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a separate diagnostic entity, Mycoplasma pneumoniae-induced rash and mucositis (MIRM), has recently been proposed to better characterize the rash and severe mucositis that some patients exhibit. A subset of patients with MIRM will have mucositis without skin rash. Physicians should recognize this clinical entity and be familiar with treatment options for MIRM.
