Nasopharyngeal aspirates and throat swab specimens were compared in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based test forMycoplasma pneumoniae. The pathogen was detected in 50 % and 45 % of throat swab specimens and aspirates, respectively. However, in specimens negative forMycoplasma pneumoniae by PCR, amplification inhibitors were detected in 0 % and 36 % of throat specimens and aspirates, respectively. Further investigations confirmed that no throat specimens, but one-quarter of aspirates, are… CONTINUE READING
