In a total of 167 respiratory tract specimens from adult outpatients with confirmed Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia, sampled between 2003 and 2008, and a further 99 isolates obtained from patients between 1991 and 2009 in Germany, M. pneumoniae was tested for macrolide resistance. Using PCR, real-time PCR and sequencing of the 23S rRNA gene, 1.2% of M. pneumoniae in the respiratory tract samples and 3.0% of the isolates were found to be resistant. The results indicate a limited but not… CONTINUE READING
