Severe Pediatric Mycoplasma pneumoniae Infection Requiring Veno-venous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Abstract: Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MP) is an atypical bacterial pathogen that typically causes mild respiratory symptoms. Rarely, MP is associated with acute respiratory distress syndrome, a condition marked by widespread inflammation in the lungs that often requires invasive support. We report a case of severe acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in an otherwise healthy adolescent because of MP.
