STUDY OBJECTIVE This study was designed to evaluate the usefulness of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect Mycoplasma pneumoniae DNA in samples obtained by transthoracic needle aspiration (TNA). DESIGN Prospective study of cases. SETTING A university hospital in Lleida, Spain. PATIENTS A total of 101 unselected patients, admitted between January 1993 and March 1994 in the emergency department, with a clinical and radiologic picture of community-acquired pneumonia, and without… CONTINUE READING
