Its clinical presentation contrasts to that of "typical" pneumonia. A variety of microorganisms can cause it. When it develops independently from another disease it is called primary atypical pneumonia (PAP). The term was introduced in the 1930s and was contrasted with the bacterial pneumonia caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, at that time the best known and most commonly occurring form of pneumonia. The distinction was historically considered important, as it differentiated those more likely to present with "typical" respiratory symptoms and lobar pneumonia from those more likely to present with ...
Chronic Mycoplasma pneumonia and Chlamydia pneumonia infections are associated with the onset and exacerbation of asthma. These microbial infections result in chronic lower airway inflammation, impaired mucociliary clearance, an increase in mucous production and eventually asthma. Furthermore, children who experience severe viral respiratory infections early in life have a high possibility of having asthma later in their childhood. These viral respiratory infections are mostly caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human rhinovirus (HRV). Although RSV infections increase the risk of asthma in early childhood, the association between asthma and RSV decreases with increasing age. HRV on the other hand is an important cause of bronchiolitis and is strongly associated with asthma development. In children and adults with established asthma, viral upper respiratory tract infections (URIs), especially HRVs ...
... is a neurological disorder. Its cause has not been established, but its association with asthma exacerbations (usually with a respiratory infection as a trigger) has led to suspicion that the initial viral insult that causes the respiratory infection is also implicated in the subsequent paralysis. Herpes simplex virus type I DNA has been found in the cerebrospinal fluid of at least one patient diagnosed with Hopkins syndrome. In several cases, anti-viral antibody titers for echovirus, enterovirus, coxsackievirus and poliovirus types 1, 2 and 3 were specifically sought; all were negative., There is one reported case in which Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection was found in the patient. The syndrome appears to involve the spinal cord: specifically, the anterior horn cells subserving the affected muscles are often damaged. The evidence for anterior horn cell involvement comes from radiological ,, and electromyographical studies. In one case, a ...
肺炎支原體（Mycoplasma pneumoniae、黴漿菌性肺炎）是一種可導致肺炎的支原體細菌，也有機會導致冷凝集素症(cold agglutinin disease)。這種由肺炎支原體引起的肺炎，又稱作黴漿菌性肺炎，盛行於學齡兒童。. 大多數患者只有輕微上呼吸道感染，有咳嗽、發燒、喉嚨痛、頭痛及疲倦等徵狀，有些患者有肺外症狀像是皮膚紅疹，嚴重者則可能患上肺炎，屬於非典型肺炎的一種。. 輕微黴漿菌性肺炎大多是自限性，不需藥物治療。但嚴重住院者，由於黴漿菌性肺炎不能用一般的肺炎藥來醫治，即使兒童感染了黴漿菌性肺炎，也只能用原來用於醫治成人肺炎的強效藥物來醫治，舉例來說，可以使用Macrolides類的抗生素像是Azithromycin。. ...
기관지염(氣管支炎, bronchitis)은 폐의 기관지에 생기는 염증이다. 증상으로는 가래, 천명, 호흡 곤란, 가슴의 불편함 등이 있다. 기관지염은 급성 및 만성 두 종류로 분류된다. 급성 기관지염은 기침 감기로도 알려져 있다. 급성 기관지염은 보통 3 주 정도 지속적으로 기침을 한다. 원인의 90 % 이상이 바이러스 감염이다. 이 바이러스는 기침을 통해, 혹은 직접적인 접촉을 통해 공중에 퍼질 수 있다. 흡연, 먼지 및 기타 대기 오염에 대한 노출이 위험 요인이다. 폐렴미코플라스마(Mycoplasma pneumoniae) 나 백일해균(Bordetella pertussis)과 같은 박테리아나 고농도의 대기 오염에 의한 경우도 소량 존재한다.급성 기관지염의 치료에는 일반적으로 휴식, paracetamol (acetaminophen) 및 NSAIDs가 발열에 도움이 된다. 만성 기관지염은 적어도 2 년 동안, 1 년에 3 ...
Pneumonia can be classified in several ways, most commonly by where it was acquired (hospital versus community), but may also by the area of lung affected or by the causative organism. There is also a combined clinical classification, which combines factors such as age, risk factors for certain microorganisms, the presence of underlying lung disease or systemic disease, and whether the person has recently been hospitalized. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is infectious pneumonia in a person who has not recently been hospitalized. CAP is the most common type of pneumonia. The most common causes of CAP vary depending on a person's age, but they include Streptococcus pneumoniae, viruses, the atypical bacteria, and Haemophilus influenzae. Overall, Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common cause of ...

... (MG) is a bacterium belonging to the class Mollicutes and the family Mycoplasmataceae. It is the causative agent of chronic respiratory disease (CRD) in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys, chickens, game birds, pigeons, and passerine birds of all ages. Mycoplasmosis is the infection of Mycoplasma bacteria. Mycoplasmas have many defining characteristics. Mycoplasma lack cell walls, have highly variable surface proteins and a distinctive plasma membrane, and are the smallest self-replicating prokaryotes. Mycoplasma can cause disease in humans, animals, insects, and plants. Mycoplasma attach to host epithelial cells, such as in the respiratory tract, which causes cell damage and inflammatory response. There are currently over 100 species of Mycoplasma known. The ...
... is a species of bacteria in the genus Mycoplasma. This genus of bacteria lacks a cell wall around their cell membrane. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. Mycoplasma are the smallest bacterial cells yet discovered, can survive without oxygen and are typically about 0. 1 µm in diameter. Mycoplasma salivarium is found in the mouths of 97% of the healthy population, and is generally considered to be a commensal organism and part of the normal oral flora. Mycoplasma salivarium has, however, been implicated in eye and ear disorders, oral infection, septic arthritis and periodontal disease. This species has been isolated from synovial fluid from patients with chronic arthritis and from primates. It has been recovered from a biliary stent. It also was recovered ...
... is a small bacterium found in the class Mollicutes. It belongs to the genus Mycoplasma, a well-known group of obligate intracellular parasites that inhabit humans. It also is known to be an opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised humans. As with other Mycoplasma species, M. orale is not readily treated with many antibiotics due to its lack of a peptidoglycan cell wall. Therefore, this species is relevant to the medical field as physicians face the task of treating patients suffering from infections with this microbe. It is characterized by a small physical size (0.1 micrometer in diameter on average), a small genome size, and a limited metabolism. It is also known to frequently contaminate laboratory experiments. This bacteria is very similar physiologically and morphologically to its sister species within the Mycoplasma genus; however, its recent discovery leaves many questions still unanswered ...
... (formerly Haemobartonella felis) is a gram negative epierythrocytic parasitic bacterium. It often appears in bloodsmears as small (0.6μm) coccoid bodies, sometimes forming short chains of 3 to 6 organisms. It is usually the causative agent of Feline Infectious Anemia (FIA) in the United States. The ~1.15 Mb genome contains a minimalistic assortment of genes limited to the most basic cellular functions. This leaves M. haemofelis inextricably dependent upon its host for the provision of amino acids, cholesterol, vitamins, and fatty acids. The complex and specific conditions the bacterium requires have made it impossible to culture outside a host thus far. Arthropod vectors are thought to be the primary source of infection, although M. haemofelis is also known to be transmitted from queen to kitten and following blood transfusion. Immunocompromization and/or coinfection with FeLV, FIV, and other Mycoplasma species can exacerbate symptoms or cause symptoms to arise in ...
... is a species of bacteria in the genus Mycoplasma. This genus of bacteria lacks a cell wall around their cell membrane. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. Mycoplasma are the smallest bacterial cells yet discovered, can survive without oxygen and are typically about 0. 1 µm in diameter. It has been found in human respiratory infections and is associated with chronic bronchitis in immunosuppressed patients. It has been observed to possess gliding motility, a protruding polar tip resembling that of M. gallepticum, and cytoskeletal structure at its polar tip similar to M. pneumonia's. Those infected show symptoms of lower respiratory tract infections such as increased respiratory rates and increased pulse rates. The type strain is strain A39 = ATCC BAA-992 = NCTC 11740 . Ryan KJ, Ray CG ...
... is a species of Gram-positive bacteria. It is pathogenic, though many infected show no symptoms. It is a sexually transmitted disease though an infant may be infected during birth. It has an elongated shape and its cells possess two internal compartments, one packed with granules, the other filled with coarse granules (consistent with ribosomal structures). The organism has properties of adherence, hemadsorption and cytadsorption and invades different types of mammalian cells. The type strain is strain GTU-54-6A1 (= ATCC 55252).This particular species is a sexually transmitted disease and one cause of pelvic inflammatory disease.
