HG Mycoplasma pneumoniae
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a frequent cause of respiratory infection and is one of the leading causes of atypical pneumonia . In fact, can be responsible for up to 35% of community-acquired pneumonia in some populations  M. pneumoniae can be easily transmitted through communities by coughing, and epidemics have been reported with a 3-5 year cycle . The bacterium is resistant to many antibiotic drugs, and the immune response to infection with M. pneumoniae limited.
